... translated to the right side of the altar. The crypt of the present parish church remains a focus for veneration of Cedd. Hisbrother St. Chad took his place as abbot.
Today, when you enter the church, you see a steep set of stairs leading to a Saxon Crypt.
It was fascinating to walk around the lower level and think of how steeped it was in history. What's so great is it is still used today.
... reaching the earth from the cloud and both Geoff and I were concerned it would head our way. Within five minutes or so, it was above us and started pelting us with good sized hail stones. On the moorland where we were, there was no shelter so we had to slog through it, covering our faces as the hail hit. I couldn't believe how much they hurt when they hit our faces! It was all over in about 15 minutes. ...
... with a friend who I knew was out working in China, and messaged him to ask about what he does, and how he got into it etcetera etcetera. After numerous exchanges, he put me in touch with someone looking for an English teacher to start work in Shanghai for a year starting February 2014. I thought "Perfect!!! The next adventure right there!!!" and literally from there the ball began to roll. So just to summarise where I'm currently at with my travels...I'm still at ...
... in a huge city like Shanghai!! The third hardest thing (and actually, the absolute hardest part) had obviously been saying goodbye to my family and friends. The good thing again about the delay has meant that I have managed to squeeze in the most leaving meals and nights out known to man. My original leaving party was a month today after all! However, this hasn't made it any easier to say goodbye to everybody. At this point though, I have managed to ...
Just like when we were leaving for Pocklington, the train lines were again delayed. After Claire's Mum and Peter drove us to the station we realised that our train was 40 minutes delayed, then we had to travel the second part by bus and then finally the third part was so slow that again we were running two hours behind schedule upon arrival in London.
And there is the end of Christmas- now New Years to look forward ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Crown Spa Hotel Scarborough
We made our booking at the last minute through late rooms. It would appear that the room we stayed in (207) was kept specifically for late, cheap bookings. Room was fine - spotlessly clean and newly-decorated. Bathroom a bit dated, but again, very clean. Double bed was rather small. Room very warm, but Reception provided a fan upon request. Pool and Leisure areas all very nice, but small, so would be quite cramped at busy times. Breakfast was buffet style - average. Would recommend the Brasserie "Spice Traders" Restaurant within the hotel - they do an all you can eat buffet on certain weekdays, which we found to be good value. The hotel car park is small, but the hotels in the area provide guests with permits for on-street parking, and we didn't find a problem with parking. We were satisfied with the hotel considering it was a late booking, and the rate we paid.
Loved the water activities
good hotel, but costly up and down the cliffs for us senior citazens, somekind of consession would be welcome, oblige mrs hancock,.
we stayed in february this year and it was better than we thought the food
was excellent the staff very polite and the facilities ie the pool and the gym
all very good the only draw back is the parking but thats not too much of a
problem the view from the hotel is breath taking scarborough is best anyway because its in yorkshire and we are yorkshire we will go back no
doubt about that
Excellent and Enjoyable
I Have just had a most enjoyable stay at this Hotel.
The food is excellent and the staff very friendly.
The leisure was very good andit was nice tosee that Children were restricted from the sauna suites at all times. This meant that we had peace and quiet. The Pool also had children restricted times this is good in that this was the first hotel I have been to that did not have children running around and shouting all the time; well the noise was at least restricted to set times.
Our room was very clean and warm which made up for the poor stormy weather. Definately would go again!!!
The view from the hotel is by far the best thing about the Crown. In the lounge you can sit and have a drink or a nice cuppa and watch the fog roll in onto the Yorkshire coast........ In other words you need fine weather to get the most out of this hotel! If it's raining and cold, it's perched up on the clifftops and can be fairly miserable, but a small whisky in the front bar will help.
We arrived late after walking out of a horrendous neighbouring hotel..The Grand...and were pleased to see that we could be accomodated in this clean and friendly hotel. The room was fantastic, a family room with stunning views and elegant decor. The evening meal was excellent and we felt very welcome despite having a tired two and six year old, the waiter, Paul, was exceptionally helpful. We were too late to enjoy the pool but we will return to take advantage very soon. Clean, child friendly, excellent staff, good food and a damn site better than the Grand!!!
stayed half term in Feb here. the pool etc great-apart from teenage son not allowed to use the aroma rooms or the COLD jacuzzi at any time-not told this on the phone, restricted times for the pool for children.
staff friendly fitness facilities excellent brilliant swimming and leisure activities food of a very good standard and choice bargains to be had on winter breaks not to be missed return assured
We stayed at this big impossing victorian looking hotel with our 4 year old son. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and good.
We spoke to a couple who regularly stay at the hotel and they had the same room as the last time they stayed and it had been refurbished to a high standard. Our room was very clean and appeared new so it must be one of these newly refurbished rooms. The sea view was excellent. The leisure facilities are the best we have seen in a UK hotel for some time. Full Gym, Pool, and sauna suites. Definately will go again!
Shabby & not so Chic
Excellent view overlooking Scarborough bays and excellent food (the evening table d'hote better much than expected and very nicely presented) but the whole place could do with refurbishing. We stayed on a cheap break so perhaps the room we had was not representative of the whole accommodation. Certainly good value for money but will ask for a room upgrade next time!
