The Vikings obviously had a liking for this part of the coast, when they weren't wading through the mud at Grimsby... they were busy forming a settlement at Scarborough. The Viking influence can still be seen even nowadays with the shape of the local small fishing boats called cobles, strongly resembling Viking longships.

In many ways it was an obvious site for seafarers to make their home, protected as it is by the massive promontory of Scarborough Rock.
