Billingham

Wandering Billingham Town Centre searching for remnants of the brave new world

Sadly the Telstar pub is now called The Lion Sports Bar & Grill

    1. Dunno about top 10 but to a kid from Middlesbrough, Billingham was a glamorous place, we had soot blackened victorian buildings, Billingham had a modern town centre with an ice rink and a huge swimming pool. We had streets, Billingham had Boulevards and avenues. Even the Chemical works looked futuristic.It’s a shame to see it on hard times. The Brut is unbalanced since the demolition of this rare beauty https://www.somethingconcreteandmodern.co.uk/building/la-ronde-nightclub/

  1. We used to travel to Billingham from Redcar for the ice rink.

    I think we used to go swimming there too. I think the pool had proper height diving boards.
