Today we had Dan visiting. He told us about himself and about many interesting things, including that his home is near Whitby, an ancient seaport and fishing village on the north-east coast of England that has been a haven for holiday-makers since Victorian times and has played a significant role in English history. Its harbour, once the sixth largest port in Britain, lies where the River Esk reaches the North Sea. But the most peculiar fact of all is that Dracula landed in Whitby when he arrived in England.

Looking across the harbour toward East Cliff, you can see the view that inspired the fertile imagination of author Bram Stoker, who stayed in the Royal Hotel on the western side of Whitby while writing his famous novel.

This is the correction symbols handout.
