About the event...


The River Tees was the driving force behind Middlesbrough’s rapid growth as an industrial and economic giant in the 19th and early 20th centuries and the Tees Pilot service played a key role in the successful harnessing of the river for trade. Join River Tees Rediscovered and local historian and member of the Friends of Linthorpe Cemetery Ian Stubbs on an exploration of the Tees Pilots buried in Linthorpe Cemetery with a presentation talk and walk. Take a journey through their lives and tour the graves in the historic churchyard (please dress for the weather).
