Wilton Glacial Erratic Boulder

This rock lies within the Wilton International Site, so cannot be viewed by the public.

The plaque says everything you need to know :-

This 3.8 ton piece of calcareous limestone (containing shells) was transported by glaciers and deposited on the Wilton site between 70,000 and 13,000 years ago.

Mick Garrett took this shot 14 years ago.

Although the rock hasn’t changed, the surroundings have.

A small fragment of Gisborough Priory

Geotag Icon Show on map

On the corner of Walkers Row and Union Street, nestled next to a tumble drier vent is a fragment of Gisborough Priory. It actually looks like the base of a small column, perhaps from a window ?

Guisborough Priory Chunk

Many chunks of the priory were reused across the town after the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1540, although how this one ended up in a relatively modern building is a mystery.

Thomas Chaloner 1856 Perambulation

Geotag Icon Show on map

A Perambulation is the periodic marking of estate boundaries by the Lord of the Manor, also known as “Beating the bounds”, these events are known to have occurred around Guisborough in 1716, 1738, 1772, 1798 and 1816. It was a major local event with over 200 people on foot and horses taking part in 1716.

Robert Chaloner (RC) passed away in 1842, so the Perambulation of 27th June 1856 was the first by the new Lord of the Manor, Thomas Chalenor (TC) who seems to have taken the occasion to add his initials and the date to many local stones.

This carving is just a short distance north of Percy Rigg

It appears to be virtually identical to the lost boundary stone at Percy Rigg which was apparently destroyed in the 2nd World War.

The other side of the stone is much harder to decipher but the listed building record suggest H.R. and G.A. below the more obvious T

Picton Liberty Stone (2nd attempt)

Geotag Icon Show on map

Back in early 2017 I visited the Picton Liberty Stone and it wasn’t there !

A news report on the 6th April 2005 said it had been stolen, then on the 8th April 2005 Police said “It had been removed by a man trying to protect it from theft. It will be returned to its position”

Picton Liberty Stone

Parish meetings in 2010 talk about getting it listed by English Heritage and having a replica made. In late 2020 someone commented that the stone was back ! Whether this is the original or a replica is unclear.

Wreck of SS Lucy

I believe these boilers between Kettleness and Sandsend are the remains of the SS Lucy, corrections welcome if you know otherwise.

Lingdale Mine Horses Mosaic

Geotag Icon Show on map

Large horses such as Shires and Cleveland Bays were still in use across Cleveland for well over 100 years, into the late 1950s. Robin, Bishop and Duke were the last at Lingdale and feature in this photo as well as the mosaic.

The mosaic was the idea of Lingdale Liftoff, funded by Coast and Country and created by Glynis Johnson and the children of Lingdale Primary in 2013 (according to the tiles around the outside)

Unfortunately the background is slightly damaged at the top left, but hopefully it can be repaired before before spreading to the main subject.

Lingdale Trappy Boy

Geotag Icon Show on map

Lockdown continues to make adding to the site more tricky, but I was able to capture these images while out at work. He is located inside the grounds Lingdale Primary School, so should not be visited without permission.

Lingdale Mine Trappy Lad
Trappy Boy

A trappy boy/lad was a child as young as 12, who worked in the ironstone mines opening and closing the air ventilation doors as horses and mine tub passed.

The sculpture was the idea of the Lingdale Lift-off group and looks to the work of J. Godbold of Egton, who also made the ironstone statues at Boosbeck and Eston. He was originally intended to mark a footpath to Kilton Mine, hence pointing his finger.
