Hartlepool History Tour

The story of Hartlepool is, of course, the story of three towns: the ancient Hartlepool clustered around the Headland, the thriving new Victorian town of West Hartlepool and the amalgamated Hartlepool comprising old and West Hartlepool. Hartlepool History Tour is a unique insight into the illustrious history of these three north-eastern towns in one, their well-known streets and famous faces, and explains what they meant to local people throughout the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries. Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of Hartlepool as authors Paul Chrystal, Stan Laundon and Simon Crossley guide us through the local streets.
