Smuggler's Hotspot

By VivienO
Saltburn by the Sea in North Yorkshire is a seaside resort with a dark, maritime history. It forms part of the 36 mile Heritage Coast and was ideally situated for smuggling in the 18th and 19th centuries. The cliffs provided effective hiding places while the wooded coves meant unlawful business could be carried out away from prying eyes.

The sweeping sands stretch for 8 miles to Redcar, another former smuggling hotspot. in the distance you can just see the Steel Complex (Corus, British Steel), a far cry from its romantic past.
