New Marske History - Still Looking Back


In The 1980's a book was published entitled 'New
Marske Looking Back' this was written and compiled by the late Ena Holloway and the Rev Alan Hughes.The book is now sadly out of print, but can be found in most libaries.

My aim is to build up this site and gather as much information as i can on the History Of New Marske, provided by the folk of New Marske.

Its the photo's from the villager,s that count - a true reflection of New Marske life.

With the discovery of ironstone in the hills in the 1850's and the undertaking of mining it out, properties were built to house the miners hence New Marske was born, prior to this building the land was all farmland, the main villages been Marske By The Sea and Upleatham .

Due to the mining taking place before New Marske was built the mines were named after the nearest village, Upleatham - as the miners "hacked out the iron" the village grew .

The above photo shows the 'crossing' from the mine .The rail line led all the way down "Black Loddin" -(modern day Pontac Road) to the main Redcar - Saltburn branch line .At the end of of what we now call the line the loaded trucks of iron ore were diverted to Warrenby Ironworks.

The mine finally closed in 1923 so this photo preceeds this date - note the old school house and school including round towers on the roof,if anyone remembers when the school lost its towers please let me know.

On this site you will find many a photo that was not published in the original book,many of which are from people's personnel collections.

These are the type of picture's that i am sourcing - typical village life in the history of New Marske.

We Are Still Looking Back.

As i found out whilst doing my family tree research 'Without Asking, The Stories Are Left Untold'.

Photographs contained in this website are the copyright of Mike Holliday and the contributer.


If you have the sort of photos that will be of public interest in the History Of New Marske, and you feel comfortable in sending them in for all to see - please see ' Contact Me'.

All emails will be answered in strict confidence -and i respond to all.

Many thanks

Mike Holliday
