14 - The Whitby and Stockton Road – tooling the Stockton Coach 1838
Description‘Family Annals by Road and Rail, By Flood and Field’ By Samuel Tuke Richardson Of Darlington c.1890 ‘Mr Murray the landlord of the Black Lion at Stockton housed a very good four horse Coach between that place & Guisbro & he allowed me to drive whenever I pleased he was a very pleasant man full of information about foreign lands having been for many years a Courier & he used to say he was acquainted with every Hotel in Europe worthy of the name. During an election riot at Stockton, I happened to be in his Hotel. The windows being broken we were barricaded in an upper room when my friend remarked that it reminded him vividly of the two revolutions which he had witnessed in Paris those of 1830 & 1832’.
