Categories: Get Involved

Join Historic England’s Architectural Investigators to explore the rich history and architectural legacy of Middlesbrough’s Historic Quarter on Tuesday 24th October.

Discover some of the research techniques involved in the investigation of our built heritage and share your own knowledge, experiences, thoughts and memories at our research hub.

The heritage walks will feature three late 19th-century buildings which have been subject to detailed archival research and investigation by Historic England. The buildings include Exchange House, Zetland Place (the former Post Office); 2-4 Exchange Place; and 7 Zetland Street (Webb House). Each of these buildings is listed and as such is considered of national significance – join us to discover why.

She is responsible for the historical and architectural research for the regional High Street Heritage Action Zone programme.
