  1. I used to work at saltersgate inn during the year 1999 I was a live in general assistan. I recently drove past to have a look and was shocked to see it in such a state, my last memory was of it being a busy pub,restaurant and hotel in which I worked in all departments. I really hope someone purchases this beautiful historic building and bring it back to its former glory.

    • Hi Louise. I believe somebody has brought the building at auction but nothing seems to have progressed with the development. I don’t have much more information I’m afraid. Ill ask around in one of the Facebook groups to see if anybody knows anything more.

  2. That’s great news, Thankyou for the information. I’m glad to know it hasn’t been torn down. I have very find memories of living there, I didn’t personally experience any paranormal activity but I remember having to iron all the bedsheets up in the attic which I found extremely horrid. The restaurant area with the infamous fire (I admit to having to re light on occasions) had a atmosphere at night when all the customers had left and everybody was in bed.

    • Hi Louise.

      Here are a few comments from the Facebook post I put out.

      ” I’m not sure if this is entirely correct but I heard that it was bought by the people who own the Fox and Rabbit on the Whitby-Pickering road (who also have the Horseshoe at Levisham). I understood they were getting their architect involved but haven’t heard anything more. That was all some time ago, so I don’t hold out much hope that anything is going to be done any time soon…”

      “Sold for £107,550 to the people who have the Fox & Rabbit and The Horseshoe Inn.”
