Penny Hedge

Emily Jane Scott

The Penny Hedge is an ancient tradition that takes place on the bank of the river Esk in Whitby. Each year, a fence must be planted to withstand three tides, the branches cut down with a knife costing a penny. The penance was imposed on three hunters, and their descendants for all of time, by the Abbot of Whitby in 1159 for the murder of a hermit. The boar which they hunted sheltered with the hermit, who was killed when he refused to hand over the animal.

In times gone by, Whitby locals would carve snake's heads onto ammonite fossils, selling them to tourists. This was reminiscent of how St. Hilda chased a plague of snakes from Whitby's East cliff, their bodies coiling and petrifying as they fell.

Passing On The Torch

Arabella Uemlianin, digitally sculpted by Emily Jane Scott

Centrepiece for Edith’s Post Mourning Regal Rave; a celebration of shared heritage. Poet Edith Sitwell and the sculptor, Arabella Uemlianin both hail from the same stretch of North Yorkshire coast where Whitby Jet can be found. Edith's hands were her signature feature; she wore copious rings, gloves, and posed with her hands. Poignantly, she said "I am not beautiful but I wouldn't look any other way" and "my hands are my face". The sculpture represents Edith passing on a torch like an eccentric Aunt passing on an heirloom.

Sea Bishop

Witch Post

Artefact courtesy of Whitby Museum, digitally sculpted by Emily Jane Scott

Witch posts are fireplace beams, unique to the North York Moors area. The posts were said to have protected the household from the wrongdoing of witches.

Abbey Tower II

Hand of Glory I

Emily Jane Scott

A Hand Glory is the mummified hand of a hanged murderer, traditionally used as a talisman by burglars. The fingers or attached human fat candles would be set alight. If one of the fingers refused to hold a flame, it would indicate that an occupant of the house to be burgled was still awake. The only surviving alleged Hand of Glory currently resides in Whitby Museum, having been found inside the wall of a local cottage.
