The seaside town of Redcar owes much of its expansion from a little fishing settlement to a bustling busy town to the iron ore discovered in the region. As trade and workers were needed, many settled down in what would become Redcar in the 1800s, and it soon gained popularity as a seaside resort for holidaying Victorians. With nearly eight miles of beach, tourists flocked to the area. In 2006 the town enjoyed some fame on the big screen as the setting for the film Atonement, with some of the locals playing soldiers for the acclaimed Keira Knightly flick.
