Formerly in Kirkleatham, this is a collection of cottages attached to the ironworks. Now entirely obliterated is the medieval chapel of St. Sepulchre, and a burial ground. Gone too is the large 18th century grain warehouse. Over fisherman’s crossing is a road leading to Tod Point or South Gare, at the mouth of the Tees commenced in 1861

  1. There used to be an idea that Saint Sepulchre was more of a mortuary than a church, and that it’s somewhere under the sands in Coatham Bay. There were stories of fishermen digging for bait and finding a skull or parts of skeletons. Just stories though…I really like your blog by the way JJ
