Staithes (1000 PR)
1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
- Unit Price
Any visitor to the town of Staithes is going to be astounded by how much history such a small place can have. Nestled between the sea and the North York moors, Staithes is famous for its past fishing industry and hundreds of years of mineral production, an industry that continues to this present day.
At the foot of the village is a beautiful small harbour, sheltered by high cliffs, piers and rock armour. A small fleet of brightly painted cobles can usually be found here. These are the traditional fishing vessels of this coast and are used by local fishermen to catch crabs, lobsters and cod.
Staithes has been home to many heroes including Captain James Cook and many brave souls whose names are recorded in stone on the War Memorial. It is also home to those who today, at the sound of the maroon, take the Staithes Lifeboat to sea as their ancestors have done for the last 100 years.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.
We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.
Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

About the artist Terry Harrison
Terry Harrison was born near Wendover and attended Farnham Art School before becoming a graphic artist in London. Later, he joined the Yellow Pages as an illustrator and then Thompson Directories in their Farnborough head office. During his spare time, Terry pursued his first love: landscape painting.
By 1984 the demand for his original work was so great that he decided to paint full time and never looked back! After just 12 short years Terry was awarded the Best Up and Coming Published Artist of The Year by the Fine Art Trade Guild, and five years later in 2001, Terry had his first book ‘Brush with Watercolour’ published; this sold over 140,000 copies.
It’s no surprise that Terry Harrison could claim to have his drawings in most homes throughout the country, in some form or another. Terry was a kind, thoughtful man who created wonderful pieces of art, many of which have been in our jigsaw puzzle range for almost two decades. He will be greatly remembered and we hope that his artwork continues to bring joy to all who have the privilege of viewing his paintings.
