Skinningrove is a village in the unitary authority of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, its name is Viking influenced and is thought to mean Skinners' grove or pit. The village had a slaughterhouse until recent times.HistoryThe village had an agricultural and fishing economy until the opening of local ironstone workings in 1848 initiated an industrialisation boom. Iron smelting was introduced and a railway built by 1865. A jetty on the coast built in 1880 allowed seagoing vessels to carry heavy cargoes from the area. Mining continued until 1958 and the iron and steel works continued in production until the 1970s.Contemporary descriptionThe closure of the local industries have caused economic and social problems for the village.The Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum (formerly the Tom Leonard Mining Museum) describes the village's mining heritage, providing a unique underground experience and an insight into how 6.2 million tons of ironstone was extracted from Skinningrove. The village has a large natural sand beach used for recreational fishing and a beck, which occasionally floods, notably in the year 2000. It also has the Riverside Building community centre which is on the site of a former school. There is a Methodist chapel which has services on a Sunday at 18:00. There is also a fish and chip shop, a community centre and general dealers and post office. Every year Skinningrove hosts a bonfire and fireworks display which attracts hundreds of people. Each year the bonfire is on a different theme. The Cleveland Way runs through the village.
