Community & Education Resources

As part of the Middlesbrough HSHAZ project we have collated and created a range of resources to help you explore the history and regeneration of the Historic Quarter. Select from the resources below to discover more about our heritage.

Middlesbrough’s Local List has 91 buildings and sites on it, which were identified by a public call for suggestions, assessed using criteria and agreed by the council in 2011. A number of buildings in and around the HSHAZ feature in the Local List. Much of Middlesbrough’s heritage is young (in a national context) and therefore does not always meet national criteria to be listed buildings. For example, any building or structure older than 1830 is significant for Middlesbrough, but nationally many listed buildings are considerably older than this.
