Geotag Icon Show on map

Victorian Industrialist Henry Pease effectively created Saltburn, after having a vision of it on the cliff.
“seated on the hillside he had seen, in a sort of prophetic vision, on the edge of the cliff before him, a town arise and the quiet unfrequented glen turned into a lovely garden.”
The Quaker families influence on the railway and mines in the area is immense.

  1. Nice, like it. Sort of statue you should have of a man who founded towns based on prophetic visions.
