How to Find Us.

Across the wrought iron Swing Bridge in the towns older quarters nestling beneath the brooding Gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey ,and the cliff top perched St.Mary’s Church, you’ll find New Way Ghaut.

Ghauts were common in the early days of the town, consisting usually of a narrow alley leading from a main street, the narrow cobbled end of Church Street in this instance, and ending at the waters edge.

Club Nights are held in the upstairs Function Room which overlooks the harbour, and the panoramic view over the river offers some of the finest views in Whitby.

Entrance to the Club Room is either from the Church Street Entrance or up the stairs from Harbour Bar Entrance down the Ghaut. Members tend to find themselves a seat, stow their instuments etc. Drinks can then be purchased in the downstairs Harbour Bar,and brought upstairs.  Nb.The Church Street Entrance offers disabled access.
