The name of this quaint seaside resort signifies that it sits at the end of a long beach, so it’s little surprise that the Romans came here and built a cement works. Later the area around the village was mined for alum, which was a key constituent in the dyeing of wool. Georgian Mulgrave Castle sits on land between two rivers and received honourable mentions from two illustrious guests, Wordsworth and Dickens.
