In 1885, a Russian ship, appropriately named The Dementor, was reportedly found at Whitby Harbour after being hit by a storm. All the crew were found on board dead, and no one could figure out why.

Upon finding the ship a large black dog – later thought to be a vampire in disguise – was seen jumping from the boat and running up the 199 steps that lead to the Whitby Abbey, never to be seen again.

Locals believed it was England’s very own Dracula, and the Abbey is where he set up home.

There is even a gin celebrating the infamous event, Whitby Gin – The Stoker edition.
