Sunrise From Saltburn Cliff Lift
One of the most iconic images from the Yorkshire Coast must be this view from Saltburn Cliff Lift looking down over the victorian Pier. For many living in the industrial north in the 19th century a trip to Saltburn was a great family day out at the seaside. Some tourist would arrive by train at Saltburn Station and make there way to the cliff top to take at first John Anderson’s vertical hoist to the beach and then later its replacement the inclined tramway which remains today. The tramway was an ingenious invention that counter balanced water tanks and is the earliest surviving running example of a funicular in the UK. Saltburn would also received visitors by sea, arriving by steamers from Hartlepool to Bridlington with passengers disembarking at the end of saltburn Pier.
The visionary behind the Saltburn Pier project was a engineer who came from the Stockton Darlington Railway Company and had already built the Alexandra Hotel. John Anderson formed the Saltburn Pier Company the Autumn of 1867. Cochrane and Grove iron work company from Ormsby produced the piles, and in the following year Mrs Thomas Vaughan drove the first pile into the floor on 27th of January 1868. One year on the project was completed and Saltburn Pier opened in 1869 and was the first pier on the coast of Cleveland. During the first 6 months of opening Saltburn Pier attracted over 50000 visitors who came to walk the wooden planks and out 1500ft into what was then the German Ocean. Like all of Yorkshires Heritage Coast Saltburn Pier has been at the mercy of a ferocious North Sea and in 1875 a violent storm took 250ft of the end of the pier. further damage would follow in 1924 when S.S Ovenbeg hit the pier creating a 200ft hole.

Once printed our canvases are given a day for the ink to cure, it is then protected by a revolutionary Matt varnish to help protect against UV light scuffs and abrasion. Once dry the canvas is carefully hand stretched around a 38mm thick kiln dried solid pine frame and then tensioned using wedges. Finally the back is sealed and a stylish bronze hanger is fitted for ease of hanging.
