Blog Post: Barnard Castle to Saltburn

Comment: On the final day we travel from Barnard Castle to Hurworth, then Great Ayton and finish the trip on Saltburn Pier.

Saltburn-by-the-Sea is a seaside resort in North Yorkshire, 12 miles (19 km) east of Middlesbrough. Old Saltburn is the original settlement, located in the seaside area of Saltburn Gill. Records are scarce on its origins, but it was centre of local sea smugglers, with Landlord John Andrew referred to as the “King of smugglers.”

The Saltburn Cliff Lift is one of the world’s oldest water-powered cliff lifts. Malcolm Campbell set his first record (138.08 mph-unofficial) while driving Blue Bird on Saltburn Sands on 17 June 1922 and Tony Mowbray the Middlesbrough manager was born here.
