Whitby Blue Plaques are permanent signs installed in publicly visible locations on buildings to commemorate either a famous person who lived or worked in the building (or site) or an event that occurred within the building. The Whitby Civic Society have produced a booklet describing these Blue Plaques and included a walking route to enable people to visit every one of them. Please see below where and how to purchase a copy of this book;
Anyone wanting to organise a guided tour around our Blue Plaques for their society, friends or family, please contact Whitby Civic Society secretary, David James on 01947 228184
