Bell Tents and Caravan St Oswald's Filey

The photograph shows two bell tents pitched on the field near St Oswald’s Church in Late Victorian Times.  There is no longer a caravan there and Scarborough Council now use Strimmers rather than Scythes but otherwise the view is largely unchanged.

Weather Permitting we will be pitching our Tipi Tented Classroom on Saturday 7th April, not far from where this photograph was taken, near the new adventure play equipment on Filey Country Park. Check our event section for details. Families, accompanied children are welcome and the activities are free.

Our rolling programme of events on the 7th will include a  seashore walk at 10.30am , opportunities to look at seashore minibeasts using our microscopes and the forgotten art of seaweed pressing. Look out for a further update about the event on the 1st April and posters with times, which will be displayed around Filey.

The Tent may not be pitched in periods of excessive wind or continuous heavy rainfall. Sturdy footwear (ideally wellingtons) and waterproof clothing (when rain is forecast) are recommended for walks on Filey Brigg. Public conveniences and a cafe/shop are available nearby on the Country Park but not on Filey Brigg.
