Church Square, West Hartlepool

  • Description

    Christ Church, which was built in 1854 to a design by Edward Buckton Lamb, dominates the square. It was paid for by public subscription with significant donations from Ralph Ward Jackson, whose statue is in the foreground. It was West Hartlepool's parish church until 1973 when it was closed. Jackson was the prime mover behind the development of West Hartlepool in the 1850s and 1860s. He was the founder and manager of the Hartlepool West Harbour Dock Company and of the Stockton and Hartlepool Railway Company.
