Another dull day with more rain. Walked over to Eston Nab, a 242m high sandstone cliff overlooking the environs of Middlesbrough. With its fine views over the Tees estuary it’s been a very popular attraction for generations of Teessiders. Too popular perhaps judging by the burnt out car, litter and offroad riding tracks.
The flag, erected by a ultra right wing group, has been a source of irritation for Redcar and Cleveland Council. With its Bronze Age and Iron Age earthworks the nab is part of a “Scheduled Ancient Monument” and as such should not be altered particularly by having a flagpole erected on it. So R & C have a duty to remove it only for it to be replaced a short time later.
