Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Crow's Nest Caravan Park, Gristhorpe, Filey, North Yorkshire
 (голосов: 1)
Crow's Nest Caravan Park, Gristhorpe, Filey, North YorkshireCrow's Nest is a tale of two campsites. The first is a large holiday park with a bar, cafe, fish-and-chip shop, indoor swimming pool, and row upon row of static caravans. Not exacdy Cool Camping. But venture a little further, and in sharp contrast you'll find a large tents-only field with panoramic views over the sea and across the Yorkshire Wolds and Vale of Pickering. A children's playground forms a handy boundary between the two very different areas.

The tent field climbs up and then slopes gently down towards the cliff-top. There's room for around 200 tents (and the odd campervan) on a pitch-where-you-like basis. As you head up the hill, you'll spy some secluded areas surrounded by hedges for small groups of tents, and the closer you get to the sea, the quieter and more peaceful the site becomes. Large family groups head for the serviced pitches near the playground, while a mixture of couples, groups, and families is spread across the rest of the site. You can take the path down the cliffs to the shingle beach at Gristhorpe Bay and, if you're lucky, you might spot members of the local seal colony that live on and around the rocks here.

COOL FACTOR Tents-only cliff-top site with sea views.

WHO'S IN? Tents, 1 or 2 campervans, dogs, groups - yes.

Crow's Nest Caravan Park, Gristhorpe, Filey, North Yorkshire


ON SITE Lots of space between pitches. Ablutions blocks are on the main site; but there is a covered washing-up station on the camping field. A well-stocked shop joins the other facilities on the main holiday-park site, where you can refreeze cold packs and stock up on food and drink basics. About 12 electric hook-ups near the play area. No campfires.

OFF SITE The Cleveland Way runs along the cliff-top in front of the site and takes you into Filey (around 2½ miles) in one direction, and Scarborough (5 miles) in the other.

FOOD AND DRINK The restaurant at the Copper Horse (01723 8620290) in Seamer has a theatrical theme and award-winning food. For great fish and chips, head to Inghams (01723 513320) on Belle Vue Street in Filey.

GETTING THERE The site is just off the A165 between Scarborough and Filey; 2Уг miles north of Filey there's a roundabout with a Jet petrol station on the corner. Turn left here and Crow's Nest is the second caravan park on the left.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT Bus no. 121 runs between Scarborough and Hull, calling regularly at Gristhorpe.

OPEN 1 March-31 October.

THE DAMAGE Tent (inc up to 4 people) £15-£25 per night.
