Does Billingham feature in your northern brutalist top ten?
is there even such a thing?
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/
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.
