The Trust provides specialist conservation advice to the Saltburn Valley Gardens Steering Group, working to maintain and improve this important Grade II Listed Historic Park. Work includes repairs to the grade II listed Prince Albert Consort Memorial – an early example of architectural recycling, having first served as the portico of Barnard Castle railway station until the 1860s when it was relocated to Saltburn to serve as an eye catcher.


Working in partnership with the Friends of Saltburn and owners Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, the Trust aim to undertake essential conservation work to this grade II* listed war memorial and improvements to its setting. In 2014 Carillion Plc – the Council’s highways contractor – came forward to undertake gratis the re-paving works around the memorial. The council intends undertaking other improvements while grants are being sought and match funding raised by the community to meet the cost of the specialised conservation work to the memorial itself.
