Heritage Open Days is an annual programme of events supported nationally by English Heritage; Skinningrove History Group was pleased to take part in 2012 with walks on 6th and 7th September led by members of the group. 18 people took part in the walks that covered part of Skinningrove Valley Trail and included visits to the village’s Methodist Chapel and Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum. The feedback from visitors was very positive with comments such as “Extremely good. Thoroughly enjoyed. Very informative. Exactly the right pace with plenty of time for questions” and “Very enjoyable. Saw bits of the “Grove” I didn’t know and walked this lovely place in glorious weather”. Here are photographs showing the walkers and guides at various points on the route.
