Staithes

Staithes

Nice different view of Staithes, with Cowbar Cottages on the hill at the right hand side. These are believed to have been built by Mark Palmer (mineowner who lived at Grinkle Park) as housing for his mine worker from the former Grinkle mine, this being situated in the valley below the present Potash mine.

Thanks go to Joyce Dobson for the loan of the photo and to Neil Suckling for the update.

A Family At The Door

The Suckling family, at their home of 1 Railway Terrace Carlin How (now 44 Brotton Road); it hasn’t changed much has it? We are told the building to the left of this house was a water tower which at one point had a dodgy ladder up the side, now demolished.
