Moorcroft Whitby Collection

The Whitby Collection

Moorcroft Whitby Collection is designed by Kerry Goodwin. As famous for its fish as it is for Bram Stoker's Dracula, Whitby boasts of a history reaching back to 656AD, the year  when the original Abbey was founded by Osway, the first Christian King of Northumbria.  Destroyed by Viking raiders in 867AD, it was finally re-founded in 1078AD and it was at this time that Whitby acquired its present name. Fish, fishermen and boats would have arrived at about the same time with literature weaving its intricate threads into the tapestry of time to make Whitby one of the most admired towns of our age.
