The White House
Built in 1862 to house a library and meeting rooms for the growing population it outlived its original purpose and by the 1950s was equipped as a village cinema.

Marske Parish - a potted history
The original parish of Marske stretched from the West Dyke in Redcar (West Dyke Road) as far as the stream that runs through Saltburn’s Valley Gardens. Redcar became a separate parish in 1867 and Saltburn became an independent parish in 1873.
St. Germain’s Church on the cliff top originally served the people of Marske, Saltburn and Redcar. St. Mark’s Church was built in 1867. St. Germain’s, which had stood empty, disused and derelict since St. Mark's was built, became an unsustainable drain on parish finances and was demolished in the 1950s.
