Saltburn Mosaic

Pupils of Huntcliff School have created a tiled mosaic the theme of which relates to the vision of the town's founder when he first visited the area which he would develop into 'Saltburn' in 1860. The mosaic, featuring Henry Pease walking his dog, is now on view in the school's library. It is one of several projects carried out by pupils through the school's new specialist status in humanities (English, Geography and History). The Year 8 students were familiar with the history of the town after talks given by local historian Tony Lynn. Students from the school are now working with artist Andy McKeown on a fossil area for the new garden project at the top of Saltburn's Cliff Lift.
