What is the history of Billingham? 

Billingham dates back to Saxon times around 650 AD, with parts of St Cuthbert’s Church in the town stretching back to the 7th and 8th centuries, and the church tower to the early 11th century. The town remained small until the First World War, when a sudden demand for explosives led to the arrival of an ammonia production plant in Billingham which later became part of the chemical company, ICI. As a result, the population boomed and famous visitors to the town included the author Aldous Huxley who is said to have visited the chemical plant and used it as inspiration for his iconic novel, Brave New World.

By the mid to late 20th century, Billingham had become an important North Eastern town with good facilities including a leisure centre, theatre and a country park. Today Billingham is a thriving place, with good transport links to surrounding towns and cities.

Although ICI is no longer located in the town, there are a number of other chemical and manufacturing companies operating in Billingham including Tracerco, GrowHow, Frutarom and Tioxide Europe. Other businesses in Billingham include Cambridge Research Biochemicals, FujiFilm Diosynth Biologic and Biochemica UK.
