Filey is a small town on the North Yorkshire coast and is situated between Scarborough and Bridlington. Originally a busy fishing village, Filey is now a popular tourist destination in its own right. Filey also benefits from receiving visitors from Scarborough who escape to Filey for some peace and quiet in the summer months when Scarborough can become very crowded with tourists.
The last working fishing trawler in Filey was relocated to Scarborough in 2013 ending a long history of fishing. There is an excellent resource about the Fisherman of Filey and their families. It can be found at:
Filey has a 12th century parish church in the north of the town which is a grade I listed building and easily the oldest building in Filey. With is small independent shops and impressive beach, Filey is definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in this neck of the woods.
