Stoupe Brow is part of a ridge of alum
rock, of the height of 893 feet; it com-
mands a vast ocean view. The road
from Whitby to Scarborough lies over
the moors, in some places near the
edge of the cliff in this place; Mr. Big-
land, in his beauties of Yorkshire, re-
lates the following story for the enter-
tainment of his readers:—“ On this
road, in the year 1809, there happened
an accident, of which the circum-
stances, were they not so well attested
as to leave no room for doubt, would
appear almost incredible; a lady and
two young gentlemen, travelling in a
post-chaise to Scarborough, the driver
on some occasion alighted, and the
horses being left to themselves, struck
into a gallop; before1' they had pro-
ceeded far, both the horses and chaise
fell over the cliff, down a tremendous
precipice of nearly one hundred feet
high, and of which about forty feet,
next to the bottom, is a perpendicular
rock: neither the horses, the chaise,
nor the passengers, however, suffered
any injury, except that the lady re-
ceived a trifling scratch on the face,
and the party immediately proceeded
to Scarborough. The chaise turned
over three times before it reached the
bottom.” The ancient miracles of St.
Hilda, the Abbess of Whitby, are in
this case certainly equalled, if not ex-
