Photographer's Note

This is the second post in my series of the circular walk starting from Saltburn. (First one here) I have a little trilogy of images (2 in the WS) to illustrate the point I want to make.
The cliffs in this area are very unstable. You can see from this photo how close to the edge of the cliff the railway line is; you can also see the footpath to the right of the train. There is some justifiable concern that one day the railway line will end up in the sea. To the left of the train is another hillside called Warsett Hill, so moving the line inland is a very expensive option. It is a goods train line only, used by Corus Steelworks and Cleveland Potash Mine.
In the WS are 2 views similar to yesterday, but one shows how, in the past, there has been a serious landslip, and the other includes a warning sign.
