Old Saltburn

The Farm House, at the bottom of the bank, that led to Skelton, still has the Roundhouse, for the Horse Wheel used to power the threshing machinery. Later photos show that it has been demolished. We asked ”Does any one have a date for this Saltburn Postcard?” Callum Duff advises us: ”I believe that this photograph was taken in 1902. The Spa Pavilion is being extended and this was carried out using bricks from the demolished rubble of Alpha Place, Saltburn’s first houses which were finally removed from their site in Milton street in November 1901.”

    I believe that this photograph was taken in 1902. The Spa Pavilion is being extended and this was carried out using bricks from the demolished rubble of Alpha Place, Saltburn’s first houses which were finally removed from their site in Milton street in November 1901.
