History & Heritage

Astonishingly Saltburn had managed to maintain much of its Victorian charm. The classic Victorian architecture, fully functioning cliff lift and ironstone mining museum revive the era.

Finally, just nearby Saltburn is The Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum. This museum was founded in 1983 by a group of volunteers acutely aware that the remains of the ironstone mining industry, which had once formed the basis of Cleveland's growth & prosperity, were rapidly being lost, forgotten or destroyed and who set out to celebrate the heritage of that industry by the preservation, conservation and display of artefacts, photographs and documents relating to it.
