Red Gables

Red Gables

Marine Parade has wonderful views of the sea which were part of the original attraction of the development of Saltburn. This block of properties; Marine Hotel on the left, Masonic Hall in the centre and Red Gables on the right. The Marine Hotel was formerly Dr Burnett’s private house with his surgery at the rear. The Masonic Hall’s basement (after strengthening) was the headquarters of the ARP – air raid wardens – during World War II. Red Lodge was for many years used by Saltburn High School for Girls and is now a block of flats or apartments. Janet Courage (nee Thurlow) tells us: ”I attended Red Lodge in 1952, my first year of High School before moving to Cleveland Grammar School. I remember going down to the beach for P.E., those treks back and forth to Saltburn High School. I have lived in Vancouver, Canada since 1957 and just decided to find out what happened to Red Lodge.”

Many thanks to Janet for that update.

    Thank you Janet! My mother ( born 1932) went to Saltburn High School and mentioned Red lodge and Pearl Hall as former school buildings to me before my very recent visit to Saltburn. I found the main school building , now used as the Earthbeat centre,and took photos to show my Mum, but could not find Red Lodge or Pearl Hall. I did find Pearl Street, but found no trace of Pearl Hall. I walked past the Marine Hotel and Masonic Lodge without realising that Red Lodge was part of the same row. So thank you!
