Teesside's Industrial Landscape
- Peter Tucker
15th February 2024
Teesside is a conurbation and industrial area in the north-east of England. Less well known than other key industrial areas such as Tyneside, the Potteries and the Black Country, Teesside has a valuable industrial heritage. Based principally on the towns of Billingham, Middlesbrough, Redcar, Stockton-on-Tees and Thornaby, Teesside was a key area for engineering, iron and steel, shipbuilding and the production of chemicals.
Today, chemicals and engineering are still important in an area that has been hit hard by industrial decline. Intrigued by the stark functional beauty of Teesside's heavy industry, Peter Tucker began photographing the area’s industrial landscape in the 1990s.
This book provides a valuable visual record of Teesside's heavy industry in recent times, plus some of the more surprising more conventionally attractive places in the area. It will be of immense interest for enthusiasts of local history, industry, photography and the north-east region.
