The Saltburn Mosaics


The 4th Saltburn Mosaic panel depicts yet other aspects of Saltburn’s history. Included are the Primitive Methodist Church, now The Community Theatre, The Queen Hotel façade and a view down the east side of Station Street, The Station Portico and the Brine Baths, which are unfortunately no longer with us. Other features include the Town Crier and poignantly two white doves of peace. This mosaic was unveiled by Anne Bedell, a Saltburn


resident since 1969 and a representative of that community spirit of the town which survives because of its volunteer spirit and flourishes because of the willingness of townspeople to give their help freely and to care for others. The current Town Crier, Sharon Wilson, gave a gasp


of surprise as she saw her image contained within the panel. Hundreds of townspeople of all ages have ‘put in a


tile’ to make this project a community success. The 5th Mosaic will be unveiled on Wednesday,


December 21st. This will be an artistic creation centred on the Valley Gardens, the first main feature of the development of the town in 1861. Henry Pease concentrated a considerable amount of


time and money to make this attraction pull thousands into the town when hardly a building was yet constructed. The Villa to house the Head Gardener was the first main construction in the town following on from Alpha Place. Workshops to make the remaining mosaic are to be held on Saturday, 3rd and Saturday, 10th December between


10am and 1pm against the Sainsbury’s wall. Everyone is invited to come and participate. On the 21st December celebrations will bring to a


close The Saltburn 150 with the 5th Mosaic unveiling. Civic dignitaries and a senior Sainsbury executive will take part. Townspeople are encouraged to come along, wearing costume if they can, and join in carol singing, listen to a traditional brass band and welcome invited dignitaries in making the day one to remember. Philip Thomson, the project organiser, is still trying


to raise a further 3,000 pounds to complete his fund raising to achieve the target of 9,600 pounds. A donation jar can be found in Saltburn Library


where traditional cash or cheques can be deposited and he is hoping that the figure can be reached by the 21st.
