    Description
    Most villages like Staithes are rural communities that consist of number of dwellings and possibly a few businesses like a local shop cum post office and a village pub (Public House). Not all villages are rural some that once were have been swallowed up by the expansion of a nearby town or city but have still retained the word village in their name and in the minds of those who reside in them. Staithes was once one of the largest fishing ports on the north east coast of the United Kingdom and an important source of the minerals Jet, Iron, Alum and Potash. Staithes today is a very attractive tourist destination of great interest to both the amateur and professional Geologist. This section of the UK is known as the " "Dinosaur Coast"" being predominantly of the Middle and Lower Lias Period but much more of that later!
