Filey is a small town in North Yorkshire, England. It is located between Scarborough and Bridlington on the North Sea coast. Although it started out as a fishing village, it has a large beach and is a popular tourist resort.
A special thanks to Nigel for this superb postcard of Filey, with a delicious Lavender Bread recipe. Lavender was a familiar culinary herb to the Romans, who built a signal station near Filey to watch fro Saxon invaders. To the Victorians, who made Filey a holiday resort, lavender was a perfume. Today, lavender is valued or both purposes. By the way, the Winnie-the-Pooh stamp is simply awesome! ><
