More sculptures can be found if you take a walk along the Cleveland Way between Saltburn and Skinningrove. If you are starting from Saltburn the path begins behind the Ship Inn
Firstly you will see a large carved marker stone bearing the inscription 'North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast' on all sides. It was carved by Vivian Mounsell and funded by the former Cleveland County Council. It is made of sandstone and is studded with ammonites (fossils) these being the symbol of the Heritage Coast.
Further along you will come upon three sculpture made by Richard Farrington as part of the Skelton and Brotton New Milestones project, the aim of which was to link sculpture and the environment - hence they reflect the local steel industry. The 'Skelton & Brotton New Milestones' leaflet describes them in the following way:
A 7 ft. diameter circle to represent a new type of pit prop, relating to iron stone mining. On this are hung ten sculpted three dimensional images, all relating to the Parish and the making of the work:- a horse (for the Cleveland Bay horse); a starfish (for the shore); a pigeon; a cat (in the 1300's cats were hunted here - hence Hunt Cliff; an owl; a nautilus/belemnite (for fossils); a piece of protoplasm (basic to life); Thor's hammer (relating to working metal/blacksmiths); a ring; mermaid's purse (common to the seashore)
A marker post - made from two pieces of special profile steel, and on which are attached four metal elements. There is a star (iron was first found on meteoric deposits); the top of a plant growth; the shape air makes when striking a surface; a swimming jellyfish and its reflection in the water. They represent sky, earth, air and sea.
Trawl door - the main body of the work represents the doors which hold open trawl nets; on one side a large fish and on the other small shapes based on plankton and underground objects. From the marker post there is a strong echo of the strata of the cliff."
Other sculptures can be seen in the Woodland Centre (at
the end of the Italian Gardens) - beautiful wrought iron gates decorated
with leaves, cobwebs and animal shapes. Also you may happen upon carved
or wrought iron seats which have been thoughtfully placed for the weary
traveller in Rifts Wood, beyond the Woodland Centre.
