I hope I don't bore you all with the length of this feature but it chronicles a day in Whitby, North Yorkshire back in April of this year. The event was the Whitby Goth weekend, ideal for fans of Goths, Steam Punk, Victoriana, Emos, Dracula,etc. It seemed that the whole world had gone into fancy dress and descended upon Whitby. Seriously this was an event not to be missed.

Colin and his cobra on the way to the pub!

I wonder what his cobra orders. ;-)

@Steve Rice: Well a pint of "Cobra" of course, along with a plate of chicken rogan josh! "Cobra" is an Indian lager beer.
