The Promenade and Beach, Saltburn

The Promenade and Beach, Saltburn

A photograph contemporary with that in ”Saltburn, A Renaissance”, only taken from Cat Nab (as far as I can tell).  This shows the roundabouts where the boat park is now. I think this dates into the 1960’s. Tony Auffret tells us: ”I think this was still there in 1960. The “amusement” on the far right was a “waltzer”. There were “swing boats” behind along the edge with the beach.” Callum Duff has a dating update: ”This postcard image was taken between 1962 (when the boating lake was completed) and 1974 (no postcards images of Saltburn were produced between 1974 and 1978). The Waltzers remained on this site until 1978 and the rest of the rides and buildings had been removed by 1983.”

Many thanks to Tony Auffret and Callum Duff for the updates.
