A beautiful morning at Saltburn by sea. Setting my alarm and traveling a few miles up the coast for a mornings photography; capturing this Saltburn Sunrise over the North Sea. This is one of several photographs taken that morning; making the most of the excellent light. Also taking the time for some Saltburn Pier photography. This is picture of Saltburn shows a fantastic perpective; offering the old and new. Saltburn Victorian Pier is the last remaining on the Yorkshire Coast, and was built in1869. Along with cliff lift they have stood the test of time and together won first place in Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee Heritage Awards. To the right of the pier the three peaks house what is now Teeside’s Favourite fish n chip shop; bring a modern touch to Saltburn sea front.
Saltburn Beach is perfect for an afternoon with the bucket and spade. The golden sand stretch all the way to the moth of the River Tees; which is the northern boundary of North Yorkshire. Saltburn beach also host several national surfing competitions; along with the Italian Gardens; it is a great place to simply stroll and relax. Saltburn also host a variety of events throughout the year and has a wide range of shops and restaurants; and some great accommodation for tourists looking to spend time on the Yorkshire Coast. The seaside town of Saltburn remains as popular now as it was in Victorian times.
In times gone by visitors to Saltburn could arrive by boat and be dropped off at the end of the Victorian pier; which was nearly three times longer than it is today. When the pier first opened in 1869 it attracted over 50,000 visitors within six months. This stunning local landmark was returned to its former glory in 1990s; and efforts where rewarded when saltburn pier won Pier Of The Year in 2009.
