The picturesque sea-side village of Staithes, famous for it's artists colony of artists back at the start of the 19th Century. (*A list of some the members of this group below). The group disbanded as Members moved from the area, some of the artists joined a new painting group started in 1925.I've always liked Staithes, it reminds me of childhood hoilidays running inbetween the houses playing hide and seek with local children.
