This 19th century mortuary in Saltburn-by-the-sea in North Yorkshire, England is up for sale by the Redcar and Cleveland Council. It's expected to make a pleasant beach chalet. Having stopped being a mortuary in the 1960s, it was most recently a shop. It still contains the original slab. (The Guardian)
