Whitby, seen from the Church Steps as in 1897 novel Dracula, North Yorkshire county, England, UK, Europe.
Whitby at the mouth of the Esk River, seen from Dracula's Church Steps, in England, United Kingdom, Europe. In Bram Stoker's famous 1897 novel, Dracula came ashore as a creature resembling a large dog who climbed the dramatic 199 Church Steps to the graveyard of Church of Saint Mary, adjacent to Whitby Abbey ruins atop East Cliff, above the Esk River. The Church of Saint Mary the Virgin is an Anglican parish church serving the towns of Whitby and Ruswarp in North Yorkshire county. This was at the end of our England Coast to Coast hike, on day 13 of 14. The next day, our 14th, ended being dropped off in York.
