Valley Gardens, Saltburn, Saltburn, Marske and New Marske / Skelton and Brotton - Redcar and Cleveland (UA)

Public pleasure grounds developed from 1861 to designs principally by Joseph Newton. Paths and steps have subsided and tree and shrub growth has been allowed to develop unchecked, mainly due to the steeply sloping nature of the site. The Albert Memorial and other structures around the site have suffered from vandalism and unplanned management. Development of a private residence has divided the ownership of the site. An active 'friends group' has been established and a conservation management plan has been produced. Coastal Communities Revival Fund money has been awarded for further works.
