Rediscover Stockton

Stockton's Architecture

Hardy volunteers have braved the cold and wet for five years to record every single building in Stockton town centre.

Armed with clipboards and cameras they have carefully studied more than 400 buildings so an accurate representation of the town’s history can be created.

The special project aims to capture the history of the town centre from the 18th Century to the 21st and is now complete.

As well as providing an important archival resource, the building recording will also be used by Tees Archaeology to inform a summary booklet about Stockton and its buildings.

The project has been coordinated by Tees Archaeology with support from Stockton Council’s Grants for Heritage Buildings programme and has been completed by volunteers from all walks of life regardless of age, ability or experience.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the recording of Stockton town centre buildings can contact Tees Archaeology by visiting their website, emailing teesarcheology@hartlepool.gov.uk or calling 01429 523455.
