The story of how the Pease family created Saltburn is a great way to learn about important people and places locally. In these sessions, children investigate the development of Saltburn and the railways by the Pease family. They meet Mrs. Pease and discover the clothes, costumes and activities that made up a fashionable day out at Saltburn or Redcar 150 years ago. Then dressed in costume, students explore Victorian photography, pose for their portrait and design their own postcards.
Key learning outcome:
Students will learn about significant historical events, people and places in their own locality through the Pease Family and the arrival of the railways.
