The wave was constructed from local sea glass by Stuart Langley for the 2015 Lumiere Festival in Durham.
The frame was constructed by MIDS, who’s premises it now stands outside.
Its always good to come back to an old favourite subject, I must have driven past this one hundreds of times without ever noticing. So thanks to John Rymer for pointing it out.
This relic of an earlier drainage system in New Marske is now being re-used as a planter for flowers.
Despite being heavily weathered, it appears to say “Rowntree Printers”
I don’t know when they closed, but the ‘CLEVELAND AND TEES-SIDE CRICKET LEAGUE. OFFICIAL HANDBOOK 1948’ was printed by F.A.Rowntree, Jubilee Printing Works, Marske-by-Sea
The Wesleyan Methodist Chapel is Marske dates from 1860.
There are references to a Brunswick Chapel in the High Street, although i’m not 100% sure this is the same one ?
The methodist congregation moved to Hummershill Lane in 1966 and the building is currently residential.
After the series of lost buildings, you might be wondering why i’m posting an existing one ?
The sharp-eyed will notice the top of the tower doesn’t look like it does today, that’s because the 1866 / 1867 original caught fire on Easter Sunday 1902 and the roof burnt off. Once you know this it’s obvious that the current top is a totally different type of stone.
I have read that the railing are about to be replaced tonight, so there’s a fair chance the battered old plaque may end up on a scrap van too.

The Gazebo now stands at the side of a residential street, but originally it was part of larger gardens.
Thanks to Neil for the following info :-
The house dates from the late 1700’s and so does the gazebo. Until the early 1960s the house was owned by a doctor who held his surgeries there. The main house was split into two in the mid 1960s and my Aunt and Uncle have lived there since then. The cottage at the end may be older and may have been two residences since it had two staircases one of which has been removed. The gazebo would have provided a view of the sea beyond the garden wall.
This building is now known as Zetland House
It is made from white Pease bricks like much of Saltburn in the same period, and carries a date-stone from 1863.
This was once the village school, donated by the Earl Of Zetland.
The Ship Inn is a Grade 2 listed building built in 1932
This fascinating photo shows a half-built Ship with the original still in place
The mock tudor timber framing originated from the battleships HMS Collingwood and HMS Southampton.
The 1882 HMS Collingwood was scrapped by Hughes-Bolckow on the Tyne in 1909.
The 1820 HMS Southampton was also broken up by Hughes-Bolckow at their new Battleship Wharf in Blyth around 1912.
Hughes-Bolckow also made furniture from ships, such as these chairs from the Collingwood.
