Thanks to Dave Woods for pointing out that the work to renew the sea wall at Redcar has revealed something interesting. When the concrete has been removed from the area in front of the Park Hotel a solid sandstone wall has been revealed.

I suspect this might be short lived as the new sea wall will be going on top of it.

I’ve dug out an old photo which shows the same wall, although I have no idea of its date.

Update : This is hidden from view once more now the work in this area has progressed

  1. My friend who lives on Granville Tce has told me that the gap in the terrace seen on the old photo was filled in 1915. So the old photo has to have been taken before then.
