LOCATION – Ridley House


RIDLEY HOUSE – Coatham Road, Redcar.

            Friday, 5th April 1932 was the opening of Ridley House, Coatham Road, Redcar, when Col Sir Maurice Bell unveiled a memorial tablet. Trustees of the Ridley family requested to dispose of “Willomosteswick”, the family home for a low figure of £1,500 as an addition to the Municipal Building stock of the Borough. Ridley who built the house stated that it should be perpetuated in some form, especially being former chairman of the Local Board of Kirkleatham, and founder of the Redcar Literary Institute.

When officially opened a tablet was placed at the entrance of the building. The house was also the home of Lieutenant Stewart Gordon Ridley, Royal Flying Corps who was involved in one of the outstanding incidents of WW 1

The tablet on the outside of the former B.O. Davies Health Centre, was also once in Ridley House.

Ridley House became Council Offices.
