Skelton History Group – Selby Hagg and Saltburn Alum Works Walk

Monday: April 24th – Selby Hagg and Saltburn alum works – Duration 4-4½ hours
Meet at 10:30am in Cat Nab car park (NZ 668 215). This is a pay-and-display car park, so have plenty
of change with you. The circular route will include: the valley of the Skelton Beck as far as the old
mill dam, the sites of Marske Mill, Selby Hagg alum quarry and Saltburn alum house. Although
mostly on level ground, there are two or three steep ascents/descents (inevitable given the narrow
wooded gorges in our area).

A small charge of £2 per person will be made on each walk to offset the costs of Insurance. Please
wear appropriate footwear and have clothing suitable for the likely weather conditions on that day.
On walks of over two hour’s duration, it is suggested that you bring food and drink as we usually
stop around halfway for a lunch break.
Further details can be had from: or by contacting Peter Appleton
