The Heritage of the North Gare

As part of the HLF funded ‘River Tees Rediscovered’ landscape partnership project Tees Archaeology are working with Natural England and the Hartlepool Partnership for Nature to raise awareness of the heritage of the area between Seaton Carew and the River Tees.  A workshop will be held on Thursday 21st May at the Hartlepool Nuclear Power Station Visitors Centre.

The day will be split into two parts. In the morning people will be introduced to a range of sources of information about the area and take part in a series of exercises to reveal what this tells us about the local heritage. The sources used will include maps and aerial photographs along with historical and archaeological information about the area.

In the afternoon there will be a guided visit to the North Gare to look at features ranging in date from the medieval period to the Second World War. You should come prepared for an outdoor visit with appropriate clothing and footwear. Tea and coffee will be provided but you will need to bring your own lunch and this can be eaten at the Visitor Centre. A minibus will be available to take people from the Visitor Centre to North Gare and there is ample parking in both locations.

The event is free but booking is essential.  If you would like to take part please complete the attached booking form and return it to mike.leakey@naturalengland.org.uk
