This beautiful art print shows Whitby Steps in Yorkshire, England. The steep set of steps leads from the harbour up to the imposing ruin of Whitby Abbey. There are 199 steps, yes I have counted them, and they’re actually a grade 1 listed structure. Although the Abbey was founded in 657 BCE the first record of the steps isn’t until 1340 BCE. Those first recorded steps were made of wood but it’s hard to believe that there weren’t steps earlier than that. No visit to Whitby is complete without going at least part way up these steep steps, but don’t worry there are benches to rest on as you go up.

What is a cyanotype?
I love working with the old Victorian photographic processes and one of my favourites is the cyanotype which has a distinctive blue and white colour. If you would like to learn more about the process then check out these articles here on the website. Cyanotype Art and the Cyanotype Process. How to make a cyanotype tutorial. Inspired by Anna Atkins.
