The traditional Penny Hedge Ceremony 2023
17th May 2023 - 17th May 2023
In a unique custom, the Penny Hedge or Horngarth at Whitby is planted in the estuary of the Upper Harbour. It takes place on the east bank of the River Esk just over the railings on Church Street, and construction begins at around 20 to 9. A lovely, traditional event.
