Boulby Boulby is a village in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England, located within the North York Moors National Park. Boulby was in the North Riding of Yorkshire until 1964, followed by the county of Cleveland until 1996. It is located just off the A174 near Easington, and 1 mile west of Staithes. The village was the site of alum mining activity in years past, and is currently the site of Boulby mine, a site run by Cleveland Potash Limited which produces half of the UK's output of potash.
Boulby The estate of Easington and Boulby came to a branch of the family of Conyers by the mid-15th century, who for several generations, were seated at mansion at Boulby. By the early 19th century the mansion was converted into a farm house, which over the door on a square stone bore the arms of the Conyers. The family were sole proprietors until about 1664, when Nicholas Conyers passed the estate to the sons of his second wife, who all died without male heirs. Nicholas Conyers kept possession of the alum works at Boulby, which was founded in 1615. By 1890 Boulby was described as a "straggling and ruinous village".

Boulby Just north of the village are some of the highest cliffs in England, at above sea level. Boulby Cliff was mined for alum and in "A Picturesque History of Yorkshire" (1901) the face of the headland is described as being "dotted" with alum-works and miners cottages. This mineral was used as a mordant to improve the strength and permanency of colour when dyeing cloth. This mining was relatively short lived as a cheaper method was developed soon after the boom in alum mining. The ruined remnants of the mines can still be seen from the cliff top when walking the Cleveland Way between Staithes and Skinningrove. To the north-west of the village is Boulby Quarries a Site of Special Scientific Interest designated due to its geological interest.
