Hartlepool

Warehouse space, pallet storage & fulfilment services in Hartlepool

Hartlepool Abbey was founded by St Aidan in 1640, with the town of Hartlepool growing around it over the coming century. During the Middle Ages, the town became the official port of the County Palatine of Durham. The town continued to expand and the Industrial Revolution saw major rail links established with the South Durham coal fields and the south. A new port was also constructed to meet the demand. This expansion led to the establishment of the new town of West Hartlepool. Hartlepool became a target of the German Navy during the First World War as a result of its heavy industry, but the town went into decline after the Second World War within the industry as seen in so many other places around the British Isles at that time. Since the 1990s, the town has once again been on the rise, as a series of successful redevelopment projects have turned the once heavy industrial docks into a marina.

Hartlepool’s historic docks are still in operation, though only a fraction of their former size. In an effort to halt the town’s industrial decline, many of the former docks were converted into a marina, capable of berthing 500 vessels. A lock connects the marina to the sea and many visitors laying over in the harbour take advantage of the town’s amenities.
