This was previously the site of the Castle (later Empire) Theatre and before 1650 the site of Stockton Castle.

  1. I remember as a Kid coming down to Stockton from Thornaby and going to the cigarette booth ( I wasn”t buying cigs it was my mum 🙂 and also if my memory serves me right one of the booths sold scratch cards?  Even when I was older I used to like sitting in John Walker square and I think it is a shame its gone in the name of progress.
