Italian Gardens

Italian Gardens

A different viewpoint of Saltburn Valley gardens, also known as the ”Italian Gardens” The Bandstand and Halfpenny Bridge are prominent. Posted in 1905.

Katharine Broome tells us: ”In 1941 or early 1942, the bandstand was destroyed by a bomb. For it’s size and “usefulness”, Saltburn suffered much bombing in the early part of the war. The Infants School in Upleatham Street was destroyed one night.”
