    Injury claim in Robin Hood’s Bay


    Injury claim in Robin Hood’s Bay

    Why would you want to make an injury claim in Robin Hood’s Bay?

    Robin Hood’s Bay is a small fishing village located on the North York Moors National Park, just five miles south of Whitby. The village is a maze of tiny streets and has a tradition of subterranean passageways linking the houses. These were for the use of the smugglers, who were rife in Yorkshire during the late 18th century.

    Tea, gin, rum, and brandy were among the contraband brought into the bay from France and the Netherlands, all to avoid the duties payable on them. In 1773, a pitched battle took place in the bay, all because of 200 casks of brandy and gin and 15 bags of tea. The smugglers won the day and chased the two excise cutters, the Mermaid and the Eagle, out of the bay. Even its name has smuggling connections: legend says that Robin Hood was in the area when French pirates came to pillage the fishermen’s boats and homes. Robin Hood stood up against them, the French surrendered and he returned the goods to the poor people, as well as distributing the goods of the French among them.
