This sign relates to the opening times of the pub during the livestock mart, as far as I can tell a pub called the Red Lion existed here until around 1970.
As far as I can make out it says :-
These premises are permitted to be open 11am to 10pm on Tuesdays for the convenience of those attending the mart.
The land for the Mechanics Institute was donated by Admiral Chalenor in 1861, the mechanics in question would be the ones associated with the booming local ironstone trade at that time. An 1866 report lists 54 pupils.
Surprisingly this is not a listed building.
A short walk upstream from yesterdays culverts the stream once again passes under the A171
This stretch of the stream between Wileycat Beck and Waterfall Beck is listed as being Alumwork Beck, due to the site of the old alum works immediately to the south on what is now an off-road biking area.
The location of the road between Slapewath and Guisborough has changed over the years, just to the south of its current course remains a much older sandstone bridge.
Its now surrounded by heavy undergrowth and is missing a few blocks in places.
The remains of a cobbled surface can be found on top.
Looking at old maps i would say it was the only road shown on the 1938 map, the 1958 suggests both exist and by 1968 its just the new more northerly location.
