The Gardens Saltburn

The Gardens Saltburn

A hand painted postcard of Saltburn Valley Gardens, The bandstand is seen on the left; but the eye is drawn to the Saltburn Bridge. Built in 1869 by Gilkes Wilson of Middlesbrough, Callum Duff tells us: ”The official name for the bridge across the valley was simply, ‘Saltburn Bridge’. The local nickname for the structure became the ‘Ha’penny Bridge’ named after the toll for each pedestrian crossing it.”
