    Favorite thing: This church Stranton all saints is a beautifull old church it was built in the 12th century for the village now it is in the centre of Hartlepool.
    We all got christened here and Carol got married here unless I move to Malta will probably have my funeral here.

    Festivals & Carnivals

    Carnival Time

    Favorite thing: Hartlepool has a biennial Maritime Festival (on the even numbered years). It's a really great weekend and we have a great time there - it's really a pity that it's not held every year. It was on in July this year, though I won't swear that it's on the same month every time.
    Later (in August) was the annual Carnival - this is more of the "travelling fair" type of thing and is less interesting to us, but still make for an evening out.

    HMS Trincomalee

    HMS Trincomalee

    Favorite thing: The Trincomalee is itself the centrepiece of The Historic Quay museum, although it's run as a separate enterprise.
    It's a British frigate built originally in 1817 and restored in Hartlepool from 1987 onwards.
    To visit the quay AND the ship means two admission fees, though you can visit either of them seperately.

    The Historic Quay

    The Historic Quay

    Favorite thing: Hartlepool Historic Quay is the centrepiece of the town's attempt to become a tourist destination, and it's actually a very good museum. It's designed as a replica of an old dock, as Hartlepool might have been in the 17th & 18th centuries.

    The Headland

    Lighthouse & Gun Battery

    Favorite thing: The Headland is like the historic "old town" of Hartlepool. It has the lighthouse, gun battery, Abbey Church, Borough Hall, a bit of a seafront promernade... It could and should be quite nice, but this is like the bit that they gave up on. Like the redevelopers tried to make it something but didn't quite finish. It's still worth a look though.

    Hartlepool Marina

    Me at The Marina

    Favorite thing: Hartlepool Marina is part of the same dockland redevelopment that gave us The Historic Quay. It's really quite huge - bigger than the Marinas at Hull, Newcastle or Sunderland. As well as the Historic Quay there's a hotel, couple of pubs, restaurants, shops, cafes and bars clustered around the marina. It's quite a pleasant place.
