Who Created This Website and Why?

Whit.by Is Managed by Jack Barber Ltd

This website is built and maintained by Jack Barber Ltd, based in Whitby. We're a small team (there are 2 of us) of website designers and developers. Founded by Jack Barber in 2010, the company has served Whitby's small businesses for over a decade and has built a strong reputation during this time.

Whit.by has been built as a replacement to an older website Jack built. Our hope is that it will become a place of reliable and useful information for visitors to our town, as well as locals. It is also our hope that the site will provide a valuable service to the businesses who advertise through it and use the tools and technologies we will continue to develop.


The COVID-19 outbreak prompted us to get the site online a bit quicker than we had planned, in order to support Whitby's local businesses. As a result, parts of it remain unfinished. We are working hard to get the site fully operational.

Built by Jack Barber in Whitby, North Yorkshire. Visit Herbal Apothecary for herbal practitioner supplies, Sweet Cecily's for natural skincare and Future Health Store for whole foods, health supplements, natural & ethical gifts.
