Blue plaque № 29971 in Scarborough

The Newcastle Packet.
This house is one of the oldest in Scarborough being a frame built house of the middle of the 13th century (A.D. 1230).
It was the office of justice, where all tools & customs were paid & is said to be a half bow shot from the fort.
This carving which can be seen in the passage between this house & the adjoining property is a rare & splendid specimen of ancient English art.
It represents "Justitia"- goddess of justice - taking toll from a fish wife's creel while on the other side is "Cybele" daughter of "Justitia" offering the vestal fire in token of honour.
