In the Tees Valley, in north east England, the largest and most populous settlement is Middlesbrough, situated on the south bank of the river Tees just a few miles from the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Historically part of Yorkshire’s North Riding, in 1968 the town became the centre of the borough of Teeside, included in the county of Cleveland, later abolished and ended up back in North Yorkshire. Although the largest town in terms of population, it is in fact the smallest district, although neighboring areas of Eston, Grangetown, Normanby, Ormesby and South Bank are now also part of the agglomerative area. Teesport, second largest port in the UK, lies three miles east while Durham Tees Valley airport lies eight miles to the west. In stark contrast, the Tees Estuary to the northeast, has extensive sandy beaches both north and south of the river mouth, with a colony of breeding seals. 7000 salmon and 13,000 sea trout annually migrate upstream through the estuary. The name Middlesbrough can be traced back a long way, with Mydilsburgh the earliest recorded form. The burgh element comes from Old English burh, meaning fort denoting an ancient fort or settlement of pre-Anglian origin. Middlesbrough FC adopted the nickname The Boro playing on this term and in time, burgh matured into brough, distinct from other English towns that have the term borough in their names. Retrospective conjecture suggests that Mydil became a development of Middel and subsequently Middle, supposedly a tribute to the settlement’s position between the great Christian centres of Durham and Whitby. The burgh is thought to have included a monastic cell on elevated land, consecrated in 686 by St.Cuthbert at the request of St.Hilda, Abbess of Whitby and in 1119 granted by Robert Bruce to Whitby where up until its closure during the dissolution of the monasteries in 1537, it was maintained by Benedictine monks.
