Middlesbrough in 50 Buildings

Availability: Out of stock

Middlesbrough is the largest town in north-east England, growing rapidly in the nineteenth century from a small village to a large industrial settlement on the River Tees built to ship coal from the newly arrived railways. New industries such as iron and steel production and shipbuilding followed and the wealth generated in Middlesbrough can be seen today in its buildings. From the ancient parish churches and manor houses, through the Victorian industrial age, to the modern galleries, this exciting and vibrant town has much to offer.

Among the remarkable buildings and structures in this book are the imposing Victorian town hall, Binns department store, the iconic Transporter Bridge and the Newport Bridge, the Riverside Stadium, MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) gallery and many more.

Middlesbrough in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating town through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, from its early pre-industrial days, its massive development as an industrial settlement and the changes that have taken place in Middlesbrough in recent years. This book will appeal to all those who live in Middlesbrough or have an interest in the town.
