Teesside Area Guide

Our Stockton branch covers a wide area of the region covering Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Thornaby, Redcar, Billingham, Greater Eston and Ingleby Barwick to name but a few.
Teesside is the name given to the conurbation in the north east of England made up of these towns and it was also the name of a local government district between 1968 and 1974—the County Borough of Teesside.

Teesside remains an important centre for heavy industry, although the number of people employed has declined. Traditional industries, primarily steelmaking and chemical manufacture have been replaced to a large extent by high technology activities, science development and service sector roles.

Eaglescliffe, Yarm and Hartlepool are also served by our Teesside team. Located in Stockton on Tees, our office is just off the High Street - which is the widest in the UK – Fact! Around the town hall is the largest outdoor market in the north east of England, which has been in existence since the 1300s and is held every Wednesday and Saturday.

Most of the town centre of Stockton has a Georgian and late medieval influence, with a number of listed buildings as well as a variety of architectural types, which help to define the town’s identity.

Stockton has two Railway lines nearby and an excellent bus timetable which can easily connect any travelers to Towns and Cities such as Darlington, Middlesbrough, Newcastle, York and as far away as London via Train.

With many outstanding schools and facilities within the Teesside area this makes it a desirable place to live for many people, with the town/city life, coastal and rural all available - you can see why!
