Saltburn Reading Room

The first Saltburn Reading Room opened on Ruby Street in the early 1860s and was intended, in the great Victorian tradition, to allow the people of Saltburn to improve themselves. Over 140 years later our re-imagining of this space for the 21st century is for a place where people can share their knowledge.

Divided from the Betty Wingham Cafe by a spectacular original Edwardian folding door the Saltburn Reading Room is comfortably furnished with sofas donated by Emily Hesse, Margaret Guy-Jobson and Ally O’Neill and is designed to be a relaxing place you can come and meet friends, read a book and enjoy yourself.

A restored original bookcase holds a small part of our lending library, which has swelled to over 1000 copies since we launched our appeal in August this year. We would be very interested in helping to spread this idea and are already in negotiations with the Woodland Centre so if you’d like to help please get in touch.
