Saltburn in Bloom have finally managed to get Network Rail to return the Victorian Railway buffers which were originally located on a track siding close to Saltburn Station. The buffers are a set of only 3 remaining examples of Victorian buffers left in the country which were removed under track improvements some 4 years ago. Saltburn in Bloom are planning to incorporate the buffers into a historic feature (no flowers) with an interpretation board describing their historic significance and other interesting features within Saltburn Station. The buffers were taken into storage at the Middlesbrough Depot and then moved to York. The buffers are now in storage with a local engineering firm whilst the group work towards finding a suitable location within the area of the Station to locate them.


To date unfortunately I have no definite date for this attraction to open, however ( can report that Rapidrail have completed the major refurbishment and construction of the Cliff Lift. The main issue at present that is causing the delay in opening is the interlocking system between the 2 lift stations. This is the electronic signalling that tells the driver when he can operate the carriages. The health and safety officer will not issue the LOLER certificate (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) until this is working correctly. 

In the mean time there is a free daily shuttle bus running from the top of the Cliff Lift and the Lower Promenade. 


As part of this year's safer streets programme, residents of Zetland Terrace have requested a one way system to be implemented. The proposal has been led by a resident through the safer streets process wth consultation undertaken (by the residents) as part of the process. All residents consulted have signed in favour of the scheme. Based on the consultation submitted it is now proposed to progress the scheme and begin the legal work required to implement the one way restriction which will include the road at the front of Zetland Terrace and the rear alley between Zetland Terrace and Hilda Place. 


Carriageway resurfacing work will commence on Monday 10th September on the C174 Saltburn Road, 

Saltburn (Saltburn Bank to top of Ship Inn Bank). The works will be done under a road closure commencing at 19:00 and reopened every morning at 6:00. The works will be completed by 6:00 on Thursday 13th September 2018. These dates are weather permitting and all efforts will be made to minimise disruption. Advance notice signs will be erected and all residents directly affected by the works will be notified by letter drop. Emergency access will be maintained at all times and supervised access will be provided for affected residents where necessary.

From Oregon to Albion Terrace

Saltburn based country music promoter, Ray Freeman, has secured the services of one of country music’s finest artists to appear here in town at the Community Theatre.

Hailing from Oregon, USA Joni Harms feels right at home in Saltburn and just loves our area and its proximity to the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, with Whitby being another favourite port of call.

Ray and his wife Jackie met Joni some years ago whilst attending Norfolk Country Music Festival. Joni completed her thoroughly enjoyable set in front of over five hundred country music fans. Ray asked her to autograph her CD and a guitar that he ‘just happened’ to have with him! Naturally, she obliged and this was to be the beginning of a close friendship.

Joni has previously performed at both Great Broughton and Danby Village Halls to full houses on every occasion which led to Ray feeling that Saltburn’s Community Theatre would provide such a beautiful backdrop and acoustic for her kind of traditional country music.

For the first time ever, Joni is being accompanied by her daughter Olivia (an established artist in her own right) on her UK and European Tour which begins right here in Saltburn on Friday 14th September.

It will be an evening of the very best in country in the company of two very fine artists who totally engage with genuine warmth with their audiences. Joni has always encouraged people to come out, enjoy her music and get to know each other. It’s an opportunity you shouldn’t miss!

Joni and Olivia are supported by The Lee Paul Band on this special night in Saltburn, tickets are £12.50 each and obtainable from Saltburn Theatre direct or by calling Jackie at Feet First, Stokesley on 01642 713575 or Ray Freeman on his mobile 07505 259163.

Returning to North Yorkshire, tickets are also available for Danby Village Hall Thursday 27th September and her final performance in our area, Great Broughton Village Hall on Friday 28th September. Both are intimate venues where you are welcome to take your own refreshments.

Joni and Olivia Harms appear in association with Feet First Promotions & Zetland FM
