Carlin How Square

This view across Carlin How square is looking towards the East Cleveland Co-operative Store, possibly from the road which after bridging the railway line was the access to Skinningrove works. The photograph dates from the early twentieth century at a guess (un-metalled roads and gas lamps) – wish life was this peaceful these days! Derick Pearson advises: “The area where the Maynard Arms car park now is, was the site of Riggs the Butchers. In the 1950s it was also Lloyds’ bank.” Present day Carlin How presents a more truncated Maynard Arms and of course the square is closed by the railing fencing, the main road now bypassing what was the heart of Carlin How.
