Saltburn-by-the-Sea is a seaside resort in North Yorkshire about 20 miles north of Whitby. In Dark Angel, it doubles as Seaham, Mary Ann Cotton's hometown in County Durham. Look out for The Butcher's Arms pub and a row of period mining and fishing cottages against the cliff and sea.

Viewers will also spy Saltburn's fine Victorian pier – one of the best in England – across the fabulous beach where a lot of the action is set. This fantastic pier can be found close to our parks Hazelgrove and Redcar Beach.
