Cleveland Vol 4 Part 2



These volumes describe the parts of the District of Redcar and Cleveland lying outside the “old” borough of Redcar. The civil parishes within this volume include Skelton, Brotton, Marske and Saltburn. Emphasis is placed on the iron ore extraction industry in both World Wars from the pit villages of the local area. Descriptions include the anti-Zeppelin 6′ Gun mounted on the cliffs of High Cliff during both World Wars, the Royal Flying Corps Aerodrome at Marske in the First World War,  the Radar Stations and the coastal defence systems, Home Guard and Civil Defence organisations and again, the covert “202 Unit” in the Second World War.
