Hartlepool Art Gallery / Christ Church


Christ Church on Church Square in Hartlepool was built for, what was then, the new and rapidly growing town of West Hartlepool. The Church was designed by Edward Buckton Lamb and consecrated by the Bishop of Durham on the 20th April 1854.[1] The last service was held on the 10th June 1973, because the congregation fell after much of the housing near the church was demolished. The building fell into disrepair and was under threat of demolition, but was made a Grade II* Listed building in 1982.[2] Hartlepool Borough Council purchased the church and in 1994 started a major renovation. The building reopened to the public on 5th January 1996 and is now Hartlepool Art Gallery and Tourist Information Centre

Hartlepool Art Gallery is an art gallery in Hartlepool, County Durham, England.

The gallery opened in 1996. It is located in Church Square within Christ Church, a restored Victorian church, built in 1854 and designed by the architect Edward Buckton Lamb (1806–1869). The building has a 100-foot clock tower with bells.

Hartlepool Art Gallery is co-located with a tourist information centre close to Hartlepool railway station and the town centre. The temporary exhibition programme includes crafts, contemporary and fine art, and photography. There is also a permanent collection. The gallery is run by Hartlepool Borough Council.
