Where is Teesside Archives?

Teesside Archives is situated in Middlesbrough, very close to the railway station and the A66. [View Map] It is a repository for documents from the former Cleveland area. These include material from the local councils of Hartlepool, Stockton on Tees, Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, as well as from many other organisations and businesses. Teesside Archives is managed by Middlesbrough Council as the lead authority and reports to the Joint Archives Committee.

As well as storing documents, work is also done on their conservation and repair.

Anyone interested in the history of this area will find a great deal of useful information. The church registers, of course, are invaluable for family historians.

A list of items deposited at the Archives is available on the A2A website, which can be reached from the 'Links' page or you can search our online catalogue at: www.middlesbrough.gov.uk/teessidearchives
