Cliff House, Marske to Saltburn

This site stretches from Marske Cliff House to Saltburn Promenade. There are a few areas of dune around Marske with all the regular plants adapted to dunes as well as some relict garden plants, remnants from chalet gardens demolished in the 1960’s. The sloping cliff face between Marske and Saltburn is made of heavy boulder clay and the grassland community which grows here is rich in wildflowers with many different orchids present, some taking advantage of the periodic wet flushes that occur
