Scarborough, North Yorkshire
Scarborough is a town on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire, England. Part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, the town lies between 10–230 feet above sea level, rising steeply northward and westward from the harbour on to limestone cliffs; the older part of the town is protected by a rocky headland. With a population of just over 61,000, Scarborough is the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast; the town has fishing and service industries, including a growing digital and creative economy, as well as being a tourist destination. People who live in the town are known as Scarborians; the most striking feature of the town's geography is the high rocky promontory pointing eastward into the North Sea. The promontory supports the 11th-century ruins of Scarborough Castle and divides the seafront into two bays and south; the South Bay was the site of the original medieval harbour, which form the old town. This remains the main tourist area, with a sandy beach, cafés, arcades and entertainment facilities.
The modern commercial town centre has migrated 440 yards north-west of the harbour area and 100 feet above it and contains the transport hubs, main services and nightlife. The harbour has undergone major regeneration including the new Albert Strange Pontoons, a more pedestrian-friendly promenade, street lighting and seating; the North Bay has traditionally been the more peaceful end of the resort and is home to Peasholm Park which, in June 2007, was restored to its Japanese-themed glory, complete with reconstructed pagoda, a new boat house was added in 2018. For many years a mock maritime battle has been re-enacted on the boating lake with large model boats and fireworks throughout the summer holiday season; the North Bay Railway is a miniature railway running from the park through Northstead Manor Gardens to the Sea Life Centre at Scalby Mills. The North Bay Railway has what is believed to be the oldest operational diesel-hydraulic locomotive in the world. Neptune was built in 1931 by Hudswell Clarke of Leeds and is appropriately numbered 1931.
Northstead Manor Gardens include the North Bay Railway and three other attractions: a water chute, a boating lake with boats for hire during the summer season and an open-air theatre. The water chute is now grade II listed and is one of the oldest surviving water chutes in Britain, with the ride of today being the same as when it was opened in the 1930s; the Lord Mayor of London opened the theatre in 1932 and audiences flocked to see Merrie England, the first production to be staged at the outdoor venue. Productions were put on during the summer seasons until musicals ceased in 1968 after West Side Story, apart from a YMCA production in 1982. In 1997 the dressing rooms and stage set building on the island were demolished and the seating removed; the last concert to be held at the open-air theatre before it closed in 1986 was James Last and his orchestra. Scarborough's open-air theatre was reopened on Friday 23 July 2010 by Queen Elizabeth II with an operatic concert starring José Carreras and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, accompanied by the Opera North Orchestra, concluding with a firework display.
North Bay and South Bay are linked by Marine Drive, an extensive Victorian promenade, built around the base of the headland. Overlooking both bays is Scarborough Castle, bombarded by the German warships SMS Derfflinger and SMS Von der Tann in the First World War. Both bays have numerous rock-pools at low tide; the South Cliff Promenade above the Spa and South Cliff Gardens has excellent views of the South Bay and old town. Its splendid Regency and Victorian terraces are still intact, with a mix of quality hotels and flats; the ITV television drama The Royal and its recent spin-off series, The Royal Today were both filmed in the area. The South Bay has the largest illuminated'star disk' anywhere in the UK, it is 85 feet across and fitted with subterranean lights representing the 42 brightest stars and major constellations that can be seen from Scarborough in the northern skies. To the south-west of the town, beside the York to Scarborough railway line, is an ornamental lake known as Scarborough Mere.
In the 20th century the Mere was a popular park, with rowing boats, canoes and a miniature pirate ship – the Hispaniola – on which passengers were taken to'Treasure Island' to dig for doubloons. Since the late 1990s the Mere has been redesigned as a natural space for picnics and walkers. In 2012 a new snack bar was built alongside the Mere; the lake is now part of the Oliver's Mount Country Park and the Hispaniola now sails out of Scarborough harbour during the summer season. Surrounding the River Derwent as it converges into the sea are high hills with tall, dense grasses and fertile soil, due to the stream'Sea Cut' leading from the River Derwent to the estuary at the North Sea; the area has crop growth. The town was founded around 966 AD as Skarðaborg by Thorgils Skarthi, a Viking raider, though there is no archaeological evidence to support these claims, made during the 1960s, as part of a pageant of Scarborough events; the origin of this belief is a fragment of an Icelandic Saga. In the 4th century there had been a Roman signal station on Scarborough headland and there is evidence of much earlier Stone Age and Bronze Age settlements.
However any new settlement was soon burned to the ground by a rival band of Vikings under Tosti, Lord of Falsgrave, Harald III of Norway. The destruction and massacre meant that little remained to be recorded in the Domesday survey of 1085; the original inland village of Falsgrave was Saxon rather than Viking. Scarborough re
Scarborough Football Club were an association football club based in the seaside resort of Scarborough, North Yorkshire. They were one of the oldest football clubs in England, formed in 1879, before they were wound up on 20 June 2007, with debts of £2.5 million. In the 2006–07 season Scarborough competed in the Conference North, they started the season with a 10-point deduction, for a breach of league rules, finished in 20th place which would have resulted in their relegation to the Northern Premier League. Their last game, on 28 April 2007, was a 1–0 win at Hucknall Town. A new club was established by the Seadog Trust under the banner Scarborough Athletic on 25 June 2007, one year a new club, Scarborough Town came into existence; the club was formed in 1879 by members of the town's cricket team, played their earliest games at the cricket ground in North Marine Road. The football club soon moved to the nearby Recreation Ground. In 1898, Scarborough Football Club made the move across town to the Athletic Ground in Seamer Road and remained there until 2007, though the ground was renamed The McCain Stadium in a pioneering sponsorship deal in 1988.
Scarborough first entered England's national cup competition, the FA Cup in 1887. Before the club became professional they spent their time competing in the Northern League, it was in 1927 the Yorkshire club joined the Midland League. After only three years they became champions of it; the same year, the club were performing respectably in the FA Cup, reaching the Third Round before going out 2–1 to Grimsby Town who were in the nation's top league at the time. Club attendance records were broken when the club reached the same stage of the FA Cup again, during the 1937–38 season; the game against Luton Town, a 1–1 draw, saw 11,162 people packed into the Athletic Ground. For Scarborough they were soundly defeated 5–1 in the replay; because of their decent performance in the Midlands League, the club were entitled to become one of the founding clubs in the new Northern Premier League in 1968. The 1970s would prove to be a successful time for the club. However, there was a tragedy for the club during the 1970s.
On 18 May 1977, 21-year-old winger Tony Aveyard died after collapsing as a result of a head injury suffered in a match two days earlier. The 1970s saw the club performing well in the FA Cup, they reached the Third Round in the 1975–76 season before losing 2–1 to Crystal Palace in a match, featured on BBC's "Match of the Day". During the 1977–78 season, they reached these heights again, with a Third Round clash against Brighton and Hove Albion, they took part in the Anglo-Italian Cup twice, beating Udinese 4–0 in 1976 and beating Parma 2–0 during the following year's competition. In 1976 they lost 4–1 on aggregate to Italian side US Lecce in the final match of the Anglo-Italian Semiprofessional Tournament. Gordon Banks played in the opening game of that seasons' competition. By the end of the 1970s, Scarborough had been selected to be part of the new Alliance Premier League, known today as the Football Conference, they stayed in this league for several seasons with consistent finishing positions in mid-table.
The club gained a new manager named Neil Warnock, his team became champions of the Conference in 1987. They were automatically promoted into the Football League, the first club to achieve this feat by this route. In 1987 Scarborough were promoted into the Football League Fourth Division, which after English football introduced the FA Premier League became Division Three in 1992; the club had mixed fortunes during their stay in the Football League. They reached the play-offs for promotion twice, they became giant killers in 1989 with a 3–2 victory in the League Cup over Chelsea, after achieving a 1–1 draw during the first leg at Stamford Bridge. Their cup runs continued to throw up good results following this, with a 7–6 aggregate win over Preston North End, a 5–3 defeat against Southampton in 1991. Exceptionally, on 25 October 1990, Scarborough lost 7-0 to eventual runners-up Oldham Athletic, in which Frankie Bunn scored 6 of Oldham's goals, a record for an individual player that still stands.
Their best run however came during the 1992–93 season, where Scarborough knocked Bradford City, Coventry City and Plymouth Argyle out of the competition. This brought Arsenal to Scarborough in a tie which Arsenal narrowly won, 1–0 with a Nigel Winterburn goal. Arsenal went on to win the League Cup that year. In 1998 they qualified for the Division Three playoffs, but lost to Torquay United in the semi-finals; the last day of the 1998–99 season – 8 May 1999 – saw Scarborough FC's final game as a Football League club, which they drew 1–1 at home to a Peterborough United side which featured future Premier League stars Simon Davies and Matthew Etherington. When the final whistle blew at the McCain Stadium, Carlisle were still level with Plymouth Argyle and the Scarborough fans had invaded the pitch to celebrate "survival", only for the news to come through within minutes that a last-minute goal from Carlisle United's on-loan goalkeeper Jimmy Glass had ensured Carlisle's survival and relegated Scarborough back to the Conference, twelve years after they had left it.
It was the first relegation in the history of Scarborough FC. The 1999–2000 season would begin for Scarborough in the Conference – the same league they had won twelve years earlier. However, in
Scarborough is a town in Cumberland County on the southern coast of the U. S. state of Maine. The town is a coastal resort area. Located about 7 miles south of Portland, Scarborough is part of the Portland–South Portland–Biddeford, Maine metropolitan statistical area; the population was 18,919 at the 2010 census. In about 1630, John Stratton opened a trading post on Stratton Island in Saco Bay off Scarborough's shore. In 1631, the Plymouth Council for New England granted the "Black Point Patent" to Captain Thomas Cammock, nephew of the Earl of Warwick. Cammock built a house and began residence in 1635 on the 1,500-acre tract of land, which extended from the Spurwink River to Black Point - today this area is known as Prouts Neck. However, he sold his holdings and moved to the West Indies. Settlements developed at Black Point, Blue Point and Stratton Island. By 1650, there were fifty homes; the town offered excellent farming. On July 14, 1658, the Massachusetts General Court incorporated them all as Scarborough, named for Scarborough in Yorkshire, England.
At the outbreak of King Philip's War in 1675, Scarborough was an important coastal settlement with over one hundred houses and one thousand head of cattle. By 1676, the town had been laid to waste as a result of the war - some settlers were killed and others were taken hostage by the Native Americans. Subsequently, Massachusetts sent soldiers accompanied by Indian allies in 1677 to secure the town for resettlement. On June 29, 1677, while pursuing some Indians sent as a ruse, the company was ambushed by warriors under Chief Squando. In the New England militia of nearly one hundred soldiers, fifty to sixty were left dead or mortally wounded. Among the casualties was Captain Benjamin Swett. Called the Battle at Moore's Brook, it was an embarrassing rout for the military. In 1681, a great fort was erected at Black Point. After several attempts to rebuild between guerrilla incursions during King William's War, the survivors evacuated in 1690 and moved south to Portsmouth, New Hampshire or Boston. A truce was signed in 1699 between the Province of the Eastern Indians.
Resettlement of Scarborough started in 1702 when seven settlers arrived from Lynn and construction began on a fort located on the western shore of Prout's Neck's Garrison's Cove. This fort was commanded by Captain John Larrabee. Despite the treaty, in August 1703, five hundred French and Indians under command of the Sieur de Beaubassin made a sudden descent upon English settlements from Casco Bay to Wells; the fort on Prout's Neck sat atop a bluff. When the French and Native Americans arrived, they were protected from gunfire by the overhanging cliff, they subsequently began tunneling into the bluff to breach the fort from below. Had it not been for a two-day downpour that made the disturbed bank slough, exposing the hidden excavators to snipers in the fort, the French and Native Americans might have been successful in their attempts to capture the fort and the eight people inside. However, Beaubassin retreated in search of easier prey. Despite occasional subsequent harassment, the second settlement succeeded.
By 1749, it was economically prosperous. Cattle and timber were important local products for export, with Scarborough's many water power sites operating a dozen sawmills. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 70.63 square miles, of which, 47.61 square miles is land and 23.02 square miles is water. Drained by the Scarborough River, Nonesuch River, Libby River and Spurwink River, the town is situated beside the Gulf of Maine, part of the Atlantic Ocean; the highest point is elevation 215 feet. In early years of Scarborough's settlement bonfires were set on Scottow Hill, elevation 144 feet, as warnings to the surrounding countryside of approaching danger. Scarborough is crossed by Interstate 95, Interstate 295, U. S. Route 1, State Routes 9, 77, 114, 207, it is bordered by the town of Cape Elizabeth to the northeast, South Portland and Westbrook to the north and northwest and Buxton to the west, Saco and Old Orchard Beach to the south and southwest. As of the census of 2010, there were 18,919 people, 7,506 households, 5,201 families residing in the town.
The population density was 397.4 inhabitants per square mile. There were 8,617 housing units at an average density of 181.0 per square mile.

Scarborough Shoal known as Panatag Shoal, Bajo de Masinloc, Huangyan Islets, Democracy Reef are two rocks in a shoal located between the Macclesfield Bank and Luzon island in the South China Sea. It is a disputed territory claimed by the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China, the Philippines; the shoal's status is discussed in conjunction with other territorial disputes in the South China Sea such as those involving the Spratly Islands, the 2012 Scarborough Shoal standoff. It was administered by the Philippines, due to the 2012 Scarborough Shoal standoff, where China sent warships to invade the shoal, the administration of the shoal was taken by People's Republic of China, it was expected for the United States to defend the territory of the Philippines during the standoff as the two nations had a Mutual Defense Treaty, the United States chose to move itself away from the tension, used'verbal protests' against China instead. The aftermath of the standoff strained Philippines-China relations and Philippines-United States relations, resulting in Filipino officials calling the United States an'unreliable ally', a statement echoed by other nations.
The event solidified China's expansionist ideals in the Asia-Pacific region. In 2013, the Philippines filed an international case against China in the UN-backed court in The Hague, Netherlands. In 2016, the court dismissed China's so-called "9-dash claim" in the entire South China Sea and upheld the Philippine claim. China rejected the UN-backed international court's decision and sent more warships in Scarborough Shoal and other islands controlled by China; the shoal was named by Captain Philip D'Auvergne, whose East India Company East Indiaman Scarborough grounded on one of the rocks on 12 September 1784, before sailing on to China. Scarborough Shoal forms a triangle-shaped chain of rocks with a perimeter of 46 km, it covers an area including an inner lagoon. The shoal's highest point, South Rock, is 1.8 m above sea-level at high tide. Located north of it is a channel 370 m wide and 9–11 m deep, leading into the lagoon. Several other coral rocks encircle the lagoon; the shoal is about 198 kilometres west of Subic Bay.
To the east of the shoal is the 5,000–6,000 m deep Manila Trench. The nearest landmass is Zambales on Luzon island in the Philippines, 220 km due east. A number of countries have made historic claims of the use of Scarborough shoal. China has claimed that a 1279 Yuan dynasty map and subsequent surveys by the royal astronomer Guo Shoujing carried out during Kublai Khan's reign established that Scarborough shoal were used since the thirteenth century by Chinese fishermen. However, no such 1279 map has been released by China to the public. During the Spanish period of the Philippines, a 1734 map was made, which named Scarborough Shoals as Panacot, a feature under complete sovereignty of Spanish Philippines; the shoal's current name was chosen by Captain Philip D'Auvergne, whose East India Company East Indiaman Scarborough grounded on one of the rocks on 12 September 1784, before sailing on to China. When the Philippines was granted independence in the 19th century and 20th century, Scarborough Shoal was passed by the colonial governments to the sovereign Republic of the Philippines.
The 2012 Scarborough Shoal standoff between China and the Philippines led to a situation where access to the shoal was restricted by the People's Republic of China. The expected intervention of the United States to protect its ally through an existing mutual defense treaty did not commence after the United States indirectly stated that it does not recognize any nation's sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal, leading to strained ties between the Philippines and the United States. In January 2013, the Philippines formally initiated arbitration proceedings against China's claim on the territories within the "nine-dash line" that includes Spratly Islands and Scarborough Shoal, which it said is "unlawful" under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. An arbitration tribunal was constituted under Annex VII of UNCLOS and it was decided in July 2013 that the Permanent Court of Arbitration would function as registry and provide administrative duties in the proceedings. On 12 July 2016, the arbitrators of the tribunal of PCA agreed unanimously with the Philippines.
They concluded in the award that there was no evidence that China had exercised exclusive control over the waters or resources, hence there was "no legal basis for China to claim historic rights" over the nine-dash line. Accordingly, the PCA tribunal decision is ruled as non-appealable by either countries; the tribunal criticized China's land reclamation projects and its construction of artificial islands in the Spratly Islands, saying that it had caused "severe harm to the coral reef environment". It characterized Taiping Island and other features of the Spratly Islands as "rocks" under UNCLOS, therefore are not entitled to a 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zone. China however rejected the ruling, calling it "ill-founded". Taiwan, which administers Taiping Island, the largest of the Spratly Islands rejected the ruling. In late 2016, following meetings between the Philippine president Duterte and his PRC counterparts, the PRC "verbally" allowed Filipino fishermen to access the shoals for fishing, sparking
Briarcliff Manor, New York
Briarcliff Manor is a suburban village in Westchester County, New York, around 30 miles north of New York City. It is on 5.9 square miles of land on the east bank of the Hudson River, geographically shared by the towns of Mount Pleasant and Ossining. Briarcliff Manor includes the communities of Scarborough and Chilmark, is served by the Scarborough station of the Metro-North Railroad's Hudson Line. A section of the village, including buildings and homes covering 376 acres, is part of the Scarborough Historic District and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984; the village motto is "A Village between Two Rivers", reflecting Briarcliff Manor's location between the Hudson and Pocantico Rivers. Although the Pocantico is the primary boundary between Mount Pleasant and Ossining, since its incorporation the village has spread into Mount Pleasant. In the precolonial era, the village's area was inhabited by a band of the Wappinger tribes of Native Americans. In the early 19th century, the area was known as Whitson's Corners.
Walter William Law purchased lands during the 1890s. Law developed the village, establishing schools, churches and the Briarcliff Lodge. Briarcliff Manor was incorporated as a village in 1902, celebrated its centennial on November 21, 2002; the village has grown from 331 people. Briarcliff Manor was known for its wealthy estate-owning families, including the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers, it still remains residential and its population is still considered affluent by U. S. standards. It has about 180 acres of recreational parks, all accessible to the public; the village has seven Christian churches for two synagogues. The oldest church is Saint Mary's Episcopal Church, built in 1851. Briarcliff Manor has an elected local government, with departments including police, fire and public works, it has a low crime rate: a 2012 study found it had the second-lowest in the state. In the New York State Legislature it is split between the New York State Assembly's 95th and 92nd districts, the New York Senate's 38th and 40th districts.
In Congress the village is in New York's 17th District. Briarcliff Manor's original settlement was known as Whitson's Corners for brothers John H. Richard, Reuben Whitson, who owned adjoining farms in the area totaling 400 acres. Whitson's Corners was named after the corner of Pleasantville and South State Roads, where John H. Whitson's house, the Crossways, stood from 1820 until the 1940s; the Briarcliff Congregational Church's parish house stands at its former location. The neighboring community of Scarborough was known as Weskora until it was renamed in 1864, after resident William Kemey's ancestral hometown in Yorkshire. After the community was incorporated into Briarcliff Manor in 1906, the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad put up a sign reading "Briarcliff West" at the village's Scarborough station. Soon afterward, attributed to the neighborhood's pride over their name, that sign was thrown into the Hudson River and replaced with the original Scarborough sign. Briarcliff Manor derives from "Brier Cliff", a compound of the English words "brier" and "cliff".
The name originated in Ireland as that of the family home of John David Ogilby, a professor of ecclesiastical history at the General Theological Seminary. Ogilby had named his New York summer home Brier Cliff after his family home in Ireland. In 1890, Walter Law bought James Stillman's 236-acre Briarcliff Farm and further developed it using the name Briarcliff for all his property. Law's friend, Andrew Carnegie, called him "The Laird of Briarcliff Manor". By 1897, the village post office and railroad station bore the name Briarcliff Manor; the village were approved by its residents in a September 1902 referendum. On November 21, 1902, the village of Briarcliff Manor was established; the village is known by several other names. It is conversationally called "Briarcliff", erroneously written as "Briar Cliff Manor"; the village has been called "Briarcliff on the Hudson" by Aileen Riggin. The name Briarcliff has been applied to other municipalities, including the 470-person town of Briarcliffe Acres in South Carolina.
The history of Briarcliff Manor can be traced back to the founding of a settlement between the Hudson and Pocantico Rivers in the 19th century. The area now known as Briarcliff Manor had seen human occupation since at least the Archaic period, but significant growth in the settlements that are now incorporated into the village did not occur until the Industrial Revolution. In the precolonial era, the area of present-day Briarcliff Manor was inhabited by a band of the Wappinger tribes of Native Americans, known as Sint Sincks, they owned territory as far north as the Croton River. In the 1680s, Frederick Philipse purchased about 156,000 acres from the Sint Sincks, named it Philipsburg Manor; the Philipses lost their claim to the land because of the American Revolutionary War. The area remained unsettled until after the war. After retiring as vice president of W. & J. Sloane, Walter Law mo
