Welcome to Stockton

As a thriving market town in County Durham, Stockton-on-Tees is a vibrant place to live and work, with a population of just under 200,000 people. The town is close to Middlesbrough and just a short drive from the North York Moors and the North Sea, so there’s lots to see and do in the local area, whether you want to go hiking, explore cultural sights or enjoy a spot of retail therapy.

A quick history

Stockton dates all the way back to Anglo-Saxon times, but the manor wasn’t built until the 12th century during the Norman era. The town’s market was first set up in 1310, taking place regularly on a Wednesday. Stockton Castle, constructed during the late 14th century, was captured in 1644 by the Scottish but destroyed at the end of the English Civil War.

Stockton Town Hall was built in 1735, and started hosting the weekly markets. It was also the place where the Stockton and Darlington Railway, which would eventually operate the first steam locomotives on a public railway, was first discussed. The first section of track was laid on Bridge Road in 1822.

In the 18th century, shipbuilding, iron making and engineering were major industries in Stockton, leading to a boom in population in the last part of the century. Today, Stockton is home to a new university college and the annual outdoor Riverside Festival.

Businesses and industry

Industry in Stockton has traditionally focussed around manufacturing and engineering, but nowadays the town is home to a range of different businesses across lots of sectors. Some of the biggest employers in the town include IT services company Onyx Group, car parts manufacturer Nifco, engineering business Darchem, and clothing manufacturer Clipper Logistics which counts George at Asda among its clients. Other successful businesses in Stockton include Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies and Huntsman Pigments.

Some people who live in Stockton commute to Middlesbrough for work, either by car or train. In Stockton’s larger neighbouring town, businesses include INEOS Nitriles, The Gibson O’Neill Company, Quorn Foods and Brookfield Ports.
