From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bishop of Whitby is an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of York, in the Province of York, England.[1]

The title takes its name after the town of Whitby in North Yorkshire. Today, the Bishop of Whitby is responsible for the Archdeaconry of Cleveland, and assists the Archbishop of York in overseeing the diocese, particularly in parishes unable to accept priestly ministry from women.
