Naval Warfare

Naval Warfare

“The smallest manned navy in the world!”

Peasholm Park is a haven of tranquillity in our North Bay – unless the battle ships are taking pot shots at one another!

At times during the summer season, war breaks out on the Lake when 20ft replica boats recreate the tensions of a battle at sea.

For more than 80 years the “Battle of Peasholm” has been played out for 30 minutes three times every week during the summer season, delighting audiences who still find it hard to believe that these boats are mostly manpowered. Until 1929, all the boats were manpowered, but then electricity was introduced and now only the larger boats need to be steered by Council employees.

In the early days, the models were First World War battleships, called Dreadnaughts, mystery ships called Q-ships, a passenger liner called Orantes and a U-boat.

After the Second World War, the fleet was replaced with new vessels – this time the battle that was recreated was the Battle of the River Plate.

The British boats were HMS Ajax, Achilles and Exeter. The German battleship was the Graf Von Spee; the Royal Mail liner Asturias and a submarine completed the new fleet.

Around 1960, aircraft were introduced, altering the play of the ships but adding to the excitement for audiences who could not seem to get enough of the Battles!

Also in the 1960s more ships were added to the fleet – HMS Jervis Bay, British Pride and even the Ark Royal.

Although some of the smaller boats are steered by electricity and electricity is certainly used to power the aircraft, most of the boats in the Park, even today, are powered by Scarborough Borough Council employees!

A spokesperson for the Scarborough Tourist Information Bureau joked “It is of course the smallest manned navy in the world!”

Today the Battles still take place but now there is far less emphasis on recreating either World War; just on unnamed “friends” and an equally unnamed “enemy”. Gunfire and smoke continue to fill the air, however, and the aircraft drop bombs from above.

People flock to watch the Battles and they have been reported on and mentioned in many newspapers around the world.

Why don’t you take the time out of a sunny summer afternoon, to watch this amazing show?

The shows usually begin around the last weekend of May and continue until September 1st. In June, the shows are on Saturdays only, in July they are on Thursdays and Saturdays and during August, they are on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Countryfile Live… the summer’s best day out!

Countryfile Live… the summer’s best day out! 

BBC Countryfile Live is coming to Yorkshire for the first time this week, as the summer’s best day out gets set to take up residence in the spectacular grounds of Castle Howard from 15th – 18th August. 

Countryfile Live celebrates every part of the British countryside for a full experience of everything the programme cherishes. The event is a celebration of the British countryside and the programme and embodies this with four days of live arena shows, debates, food, drink, farm -animal demonstrations and shopping from over 500 independent retailers and lifestyle brands, in the beautiful settings of Castle Howard.

The Countryfile team will be giving talks and hosting demonstrations, giving the public the chance to speak to and learn more about their favourite presenter, including Yorkshire’s own John Craven and Anita Rani! 

To get a glimpse of your favourite Countryfile presenters, the Main Stage features a daily programme of talks and chats as Matt, John, Anita, Steve, Adam, Ellie, Charlotte and Tom all take turns to host throughout the show!

The fun doesn’t stop there, as Castle Howard’s South Lake will be transformed into ‘The Waterside’ where families can take part in fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Elsewhere the Jessops Photography Experience will give visitors the chance to hone their snapping skills and photography fans can also visit the Quilter Cheviot Capturing the Moment contest for some inspiration. 

Visitors can get involved in all the outdoors action at the Wildlife Zone, the Dog Lovers’ Arena and the Equine Arena or enjoy a picnic in the National Trust Acre or a pint of Wainwright at The Craven Arms.

The event also hosts some inspirational debates at the Big Top, which will play host to a variety of guests from Sir Chris Bonington to The Hon. Nick Howard, Keeley Donovan and a myriad of Countryfile contributors. 

There’ll be plenty of food and drink over at the Le Creuset Kitchen Theatre. Hosted by local legend Brian Turner, this is a must see with a host of celebrity chefs dishing up some culinary inspiration. In addition, the Graze Inn, an all-new food and entertainment experience, offers a summertime bar, stocked with refreshing drinks and a stage packed with local musicians, comedians and entertainers as well as a selection of artisanal food producers for visitors to enjoy.

The Farmyard and Farming in Action Areas will both educate and entertain with farmyard animals and impressive machinery on display, while the National Trust Theatre will feature discussions and debates from the likes of Ray Mears, JB Gill, Carol Klein, Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell and Hannah Cockroft.

Other highlights include the National Trust’s 50 Things Woodland: the perfect place for little ones to experience the fun that can be had in the great outdoors with tree climbing, den building, bug watching and much more.
