[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]"FLAMBOROUGH, a parish in the wapentake of Dickering; 4½ miles NE. of Bridlington, and 21 SE. of Scarborough. A very ancient station, formerly of some note, but at present merely a fishing village, situated in the centre of the promontory. The population of Flamborough amounts to 917, of which number, the fishermen and their families constitute at least one half. In addition to the church of St. Oswald mentioned above (see Churches for photograph), there are here a Methodist chapel, and a chapel for the Primitive Methodists." (There is further information for Flamborough).
