Welcome to The C.C.S.G. Website.
Ravenscare carers weekend away June 2010.
Ravenscar (renamed from Peak in the early 20th century)
is a coastal village in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire.
Raven Hall Hotel (at one time known as Peak House),
was once owned by Dr. Francis Willis, physician of
King George III, and it is rumoured that King George
stayed there during his treatment.
To the north of the village lies the old Peak
alum works, now a National Trust site,
but once an important part of the dyeing industry.
It is also the location of a late 4th-century
Roman signal station, part of a chain that extended
along the Yorkshire coast.
At the turn of the 19th–20th century, plans were made
to turn the village into a tourist resort to rival the popularity
of nearby Scarborough. Roads were made, houses were
built and sewers were laid.
However, Ravenscar's popularity never soared, mainly
due to the long trek needed to reach the rocky beach.
The village is featured in a double episode
(The Swords of Wayland) of the popular 1980s
television show, Robin of Sherwood.
Now some pictures.
Above is the hotel used for the weekend and belowe
some pictures of the views around the hotel.
And a few pictures of carers on the weekend.
We have more pictures from this weekend on Alan and Brian's page.
