Saltburn Hill Climb

Hundreds of spectators came to watch the annual historic hill climb on September 13, 2015 in Saltburn, England. The event is organised by Middlesbrough and District Motor Club and brings together the owners of numerous classic cars and motorcycles dating from the early 1900’s up to 1975 who take part in a non-competitive motor gathering and hill climb to test their machines on a steep hill on the outskirts of the town.

Coming from coal seams in sea cliffs or underwater deposits centuries old coal is deposited on the beach as the tide drops at Saltburn following strong seas over previous days.

Traditionally collected and used for heating, cooking and garden nutrient it is thought that European cultures dating back to the Romans and before used sea-coal.  In places where this coal occurred it could be a dependable source of fuel and there were professional sea-coal gatherers and small local industries that existed to gather and sell the coal.  This tradition continues in many areas, particularly in northern Britain as other sources of fuel become more expensive.
