Staithes is a seaside village in the Scarborough Borough of North Yorkshire, England. Roxby Beck, a stream running through Staithes, is the border between the Borough of Scarborough and Redcar and Cleveland. Formerly one of the many fishing centres in England, Staithes is now largely a tourist destination within the North York Moors National Park. At the turn of the 20th century, there were 80 full-time fishing boats putting out from Staithes. A hundred years later there is only one part-time boat, a family fishing operation worked by three generations of the Hanson family. There is a long tradition of using the coble (a traditional fishing vessel) in Staithes.
