Pedestrians walking to Marske beach are being warned by Redcar and Cleveland Council that they will be sharing paths with horse riders over the next few months.

Damage caused by rain and general usage has resulted in the usual bridleway access to the beach needing repairs to the drains and surface. 

Although it remains open for use by horse riders, the Council is also allowing riders to use the paths from St. Germain’s Lane to Church Howle and from the High Street boat access in the meantime until repairs are completed in spring next year.

 

The man at  of Saltburn Miniature Railway has hailed new flood defence works protecting the popular attraction and surrounding woodlands against flooding from Skelton Beck as a ‘superior job’.

The £50,000 project saw a flood defence system and embankment retaining structure installed along a 50 metre stretch of the beck. The works have been designed to use wooden logs as part of the structure and to mask the internal steel works to maintain the natural appearance of the woodlands.

Praising the work, Robert Proctor chair of Saltburn Miniature Railway said that it’s an extremely fine piece of civil engineering work that has been carried out and the group are very pleased with the outcome.

In addition to providing flood defences, the works will help improve the regrowth of natural vegetation along the edge of the watercourse and provide more biodiversity for animals and birds.

 

With organised Bonfire and Fireworks Displays across the area being planned as we approach the 5th of November, the preparations for the Skinningrove Bonfire have an early seasonal twist, because children and mums have come up with the idea of this years event being all about Christmas Comes Early To Wintergrove, so unsurprisingly, the bonfire is a sleigh filled with presents. Local children have been busy getting decorations ready to adorn the area around the display too.

Large crowds are expected to Monday evenings display, which sees the Fireworks at 7pm followed by the lighting of the bonfire at 7.30.

There will be a closure of Skinningrove Bank Road for the set up and safety from 12 Noon plus Grove Road will be shut from 5.30pm with the organisers warning that parking will be limited.
