About Robin Hoods Bay And Fylingdales Museum, Whitby

The building was purchased on a 1000 year lease by Rev. R.J. Cooper, Vicar of Fylingdales Parish in 1891. It seems like it was a small cottage built into the slope of the land. On his own the Vicar had the room downstairs converted into a Coroner’s Room, and built a mortuary on the east wall.

It was used as a Reading Room for the people of Bay from 1900, staying true to its actual purpose.  Periodicals and newspapers were provided and books were purchased on loan.  The Library and Reading Room went on for many years but eventually was shut down in 1987.  

In 1980, a newly formed Museum Trust displayed its first temporary exhibition in the Coroner’s Room.  Since then, the displays have expanded as new artifacts have been added to the museum. The museum received these artifacts on donation.
