Where is Saltburn-by-the-Sea?

Just found out today that Saltburn by the sea is not in North Yorkshire at all, but in Cleveland?
Which was created in 1974 under the local government act 1972.
With no wish to offend anyone, I thought it right that this information should be shared with everyone.
Itís like saying Luxembourg is in Belgium?

Re: Where is Saltburn-by-the-Sea?

It's in North yorkshire, I can show you maps from 1700 which show it in North Yorkshire, just because some bloody Eurocrat or local jobs worth changed the boundary to create 4000 more local Government jobs actually doing sweet fanny adams, it's still in Yorkshire.


Traditionally it's Yorkshire, so there!, ya bloody Welsh git! Only joking, you're not a git, and I'm not even sure about the Welsh part.

Anyway, you can always use the Union flag version.

Re: Where is Saltburn-by-the-Sea?

Saltburn is now located in Cleveland which used to be north ridings also north yorkshire and also would you believe it was in northumberland once.When you leave Saltburn going towards whitby you will pass a sign saying you are now entering north yorkshire on your return you will pass a sign saying you are now entering cleveland.Just to throw another name in the list some people up here call it teeside as we all have teeside postcodes not north yorkshire postcodes. My postal county address is cleveland but some people still call it north yorkshire as lots of the older maps still show it as north yorkshire. Confused try living up here.
As long as you all find your way up here use whichever map you want.
