The First World War in the Tees Valley

Welcome to the First World War Project.


Teesside Archaeological Society have recently completed a Heritage Lottery funded project on the First World War. This project aims were to engage volunteers in the identification, research and recording of First World War structures within the built environment of the Tees Valley. This area incorporates Hartlepool, Stockton, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland. The project was successful in identifying the majority of First World War sites in the Tees Valley area. Please see our publications page for further information on this.

260 First World War sites in the Tees Valley area were documented.
