Hartlepool is a bit of an enigma for me. It's really tried hard to bring itself into the 20th Century and market itself as a "tourist destination" but I'm not sure if it totally works.
Full credit to the council and the old TDC for what they have done, it just seems that they never quite finished, and if only they'd gone the extra mile...
"Old Hartlepool" is the "original" Hartelpool, founded as far back as 647. This area is what is now usually known as "The Headland"
Much later (in the mid 1800's) as part of a commercial venture "West Hartlepool" was founded. Soon it's population grew to much greater than that of Old Hartlepool. West Hartlepool is what is now regarded as the town centre.
In 1967 the two towns were officially amalgamated - though for years before and after this amagamation the place was known as "Hartlepools".
