Yorkshire A to Y
The Scarborough district covered around 315 square miles of the area now run by North Yorkshire Council, the unitary authority the Government has created from the former County Council which covers a massive area of around 3,085 square miles and more than 600 towns and villages.
As well as the seaside resort of Scarborough which was the administrative centre, the former Scarborough district covered nearly half the sea coast of Yorkshire, including the northernmost of its heritage coasts.
On a section of the coast and inland is part of the North York Moors National Park.
The wide area of the district, created in 1974, also included the seaside towns of Whitby and Filey and dozens of villages.
The population of the area is more than 109,000.
There are 39 parish and town councils within the Scarborough district. The Scarborough town area is the only location in the borough which does not currently have this tier of government.
