Taken from Pubs and Inns of Whitby by Colin Waters

“The two widely differing house numbers given above for Henrietta Street could indicate that there were possibly two public houses of the same name in different buildings. The reason for this could be a forced move caused by one of the many landslips over the years, once of which is said to have caused the FOX to slip into the harbour and to be re-located in Church Street.  Objection to renewal of the pubs licence was heard before the brewster sessions in 1904.  The tenant Mr Hudson was represented by Mr Tasker Hart.  The police described the house as very small with only one entrance.  There was a passage leading to the back of the building where a ladder led to the cliff.  This the police objected to on the grounds that late drinkers would be able to leave by this way without being detected and considering that there had been complaints of Sunday drinking supervision was very difficult.  It was stated that there were two licensed premises within two hundred yards (no doubt the DUKE OF YORK and the present BOARD INN).  In its favour the police stated that the pubs record was good in that there had been no proceeding against it, nor were there any complaints about its one public room which was clean and convenient.  Mr Hart asked if the removal of the ladder would meet the polices objection, however the landlord said that it was needed for access to the washing lines on the cliff side which were on ground owned by the brewery, but by which other residents nearby had right of usage.  In his own defence the licensee said that he had a great number of respectable people who used his house, none of which used the ladder, and that he had received no complaints from the police of from neighbours.  A witness Thomas Kelly said it would be a great pity of the pub was to close as he remembered three others in the neighbourhood the SPREAD EAGLE, the JOLLY BUTHCERS and the COD AND LOBSTER being closed.  William Barrett who’s wife had previously held the licence of the premises for seven years said that in his opinion the house was a necessary one.  Alexander Hunter agreed.  Despite any real evidence against the Prince of Wales it appears the police were successful in the bid to close it down.”  “ . . 1867 . . definitely states 30 Henrietta Street.  Most refer to 18 Henrietta Street which is the building to the right of the entrance to Fortunes kipper shop.”

Views of Henrietta Street in 2006



This view is taken from near the beginning of Henrietta Street.


No 18 is on the right just before the road bends to the left.















This view taken from near the end of Henrietta Street. 


The first building on the left (single storey) is Fortunes kipper shop, then

no 20, then no 18, the white building with green windows.


Interesting note: This view of Henrietta Street features in one of Simply Red’s videos, I think its ‘Holding Back the Years’





18 Henrietta Street



I intended to get pictures of number 30, but at the very end of the street the house numbers get a bit confusing.  There are some gaps between buildings and some redevelopment, but you get a nice view of the harbour.
