Please Check Traffic Conditions Before Travelling to and From Whitby this Winter

Please make sure you stay safe when travelling to and from Whitby this winter and check road reports.  Whitby doesn't get a lot of snow and ice, due to its mild coastal climate, but the drive towards Whitby across the North York Moors rises to approximately 260m and is notorious for drifting snow.  It can be treacherous!

Our favourite place to find information about North Yorkshire roads is Twitter, following North Yorkshire Police.  The Police update the information constantly and it seems much more up to date than the Highways Agency info: https://twitter.com/NYorksPolice

Another great place to help inform you are the live weather cameras, spread around the North York Moors: http://www.northyorks.gov.uk/article/24608
