Heritage

Research is currently being carried out to bring you further details on the heritage of Kettleness.

Like many of the communities on the North York's Moors Kettleness was once a busy place.
The Romans built a signal station here, Alum was quarried, and mining took place,disused remains are all that is left of these earlier activities.
Kettleness was even a busy enough community to warrant it's own station on the now dismantled coastal railway.

Kettleness point was the site of many a shipwreck of which these few are remembered, the Viola which sank on Kettleness point on 19th September 1903, the Vanland which sank on 12th August 1911 and the Golden Sceptre which ran ashore on 16th January 1912.
