Whitby's newest retirement development named in homage to local explorer and inventor

McCarthy Stone, the UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, has revealed the name of its forthcoming development on The Garth, just off Stakesby Road as Scoresby View. The name pays homage to arctic explorer and modern-day crow’s nest barrel inventor, William Scoresby Senior, who was a local whaler to the town and travelled the seas with his son, William Scoresby Junior.

The new development has been thoughtfully designed to offer the over 60s a mix of low-maintenance one and two-bedroom retirement apartments. This creates a unique brand of retirement living in the local area with independence and community at its heart.

Victoria Dry, Area Manager for McCarthy Stone, said: “We believe that it’s important to pay homage to the towns we build in and with William Scoresby having such an active role in the town, it seemed only right to name our new development after him.

Whitby offers some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in the UK and provides the perfect backdrop for a fulfilling retirement. Less than a mile from the sea front, and close to a range of independent shops. We are expecting significant interest in Retirement Living here in Whitby and would urge anyone interested to contact us as soon as they can to find out more.”

Each luxuriously designed apartment will feature a high-specification kitchen and bathroom along with generously proportioned living areas, allowing homeowners to discover hassle-free independent living.
