    The wind farm located just offshore at Redcar was built at the beginning of 2012. It is situated 1.5 km offshore and there are 27 turbines. They belong to EDF energy renewables. Each turbine is 126 meters high. When they are fully installed and working they will be able to provide electricity for all the homes in Redcar.

    LOOKING TOWARDS THE STEEL WORKS

    The beach at Redcar is a great placed for a long walk. You can start at Coatham and walk to Marske. The landscape changes from the steel works in the background [towards Warrenby and South Gare], through the promenade to the sand dunes towards Marske. When the tide is out the rocks are visible and you can often see people and children looking for sea creatures washed up on the rocks.

    The Zetland lifeboat was built in South Shields in 1802 by Henry Greathead. It cost £100 and was made of English oak. This intrepid life boat and it’s crew has saved over 500 livesThe 300 foot long boat was decommissioned in 1880 when a new boat was built.

    When the lifeboat was needed a boy would walk around the town banging a drum. These days the crew all work locally when the lifeboat is needed they would be called on their mobiles and they would rush to the lifeboat, they just leave their cars outside the lifeboat station with the keys in and somebody would go around and park the cars.

    spent time at the beach

    a boat at sea
    4 more images

    The beach is particularly good when there are children with you. They keep themselves building castles, filling buckets with water, and collecting shells and small stones.
    There were a number of ships out at sea to watch.
    By the end of the day the vast stretch of sand had shrunk to a few metres as the tide came in almost up to the sea wall.
    Along the esplanade were boats opposite the lifeboat museum.
