Places hit by shells in Scarborough and Whitby during the bombardments

28 Westbourne Park

This house differs from most others in Westbourne Park in that it is red brick with a red tile roof in an Arts & Crafts influenced design. It was built by John Hall, a local architect, for his own use, in 1888.

John Hall JP (aged 65) was killed here, when he was likely getting ready for a day at his office.

He was the oldest victim of the bombardment in Scarborough.
