This portico originally stood on the 1856 railway station at Barnard Castle.

It was moved to Saltburn in 1863 and placed in the Valley Gardens as a memorial to Prince Albert by the Saltburn Improvement Company

Sadly the memorial is currently in a pretty poor state, which is very suprising considering the amount of time and effort Saltburn ususally spends on its heritage and it being a listed building.

  1. The fact that some pondlife scum have chosen to vandalise such an important structure just beggars belief. Although bearing in mind recent events nothing surprises me these days. What is happening to values and morality these days?

  3. Sadly it’s not so much to do with spending time and effort (and money) on refurbishing it – this was actually done in 2007 – but more due to the lack of protection from vandals etc
