A Childhood Memory of Saltburn
I must have been about 7 years of age or even a bit younger when my mother brought me to stay in a chalet on the cliff edge, just alongside the Ship Inn. I played on the banks behind the Ship Inn and on Cat Nab and spent some really happy days in Saltburn. I remember still the sound of the sea as I was going to sleep and again when waking. Little did I realise then that my wife and I would settle in Saltburn many years later. The Chalets have long since vanished - the only remains are portions of the concrete bases on which the Chalets were built, but standing close by still evokes a nostalgic response. I believe, shortly after Fran and I moved into the East Cleveland area to live (about 1969), the Chalets were subject to arson attack by vandals. I would dearly love to have information about any of the owners or their families as whilst I know the... Read more
On this photograph there is a little 'bump' on the horizon just below Warsett. That 'bump' is 3 railway cottages and my Dad lived in No. l with his parents and brother and sister around 1912 - 13ish when he was school age. He went to Brotton School where he met my mum. My grandad had the Signal Box at Huntcliff and then Carlin How and they then moved to Skinningrove. I was about 4 years old when Dad, Mum and I moved back to Huntcliff into No. 3. I loved my time up there. Our nearest neighbours were at Brough Cottage and the 3 farms round about were owned by Ventress, Williamson and Stephenson families.

I used to catch newts, and frogspawn by the bottleful from pools in the... Read more
Dispersal of Salvage
When hebditch the builder built eskdale house in carlin how, its believed that a fireplace from upleatham hall was put into eskdale's hallway , the fireplace is still in situ and has a fire in it as I write . It would seem quite plausible , as its quite a grand afair !,
I remember that The Green Howards (Army) did a renovation on the church some years ago. It could be anywhere between 1960 / 1970 ish, but I do remember that as a philatelist, a First Day Cover was issued and I bought one. Unfortunately I sold on my collection, so can't pinpoint that event. I know that they did a great clean up job, whitewashing the inner church and doing a general tidy up. I have recently been up to take my own photographs for my church 'Newsletter' as I do write up places of interest as a feature.
If anyone could furnish me with facts about the church I would be pleased to hear from them. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
