The Whitby Literary & Philosophical Society runs
Whitby Museum, Library and Archives and has monthly lectures. The Society was established in 1823 and has around 800 members. It is one of the very few remaining Literary & Philosophical Societies that still runs an independent Museum, the older parts of which are often regarded as a 'Museum within a Museum' and have the atmosphere of an Edwardian Museum.

Beginning the new displays
I have had two enjoyable days working with Joan and beginning to unpack objects and put them back on display.
Here is the first part of the display (apologies for the reflections, I should have taken the photos while the doors were still open).
