These sets of pictures were taken from the window of a Grand Central train which runs from Sunderland, through to Kings Cross, via Northallerton. It picks up passengers at Eaglescliffe and Hartlepool but for some reason does not stop at Stockton. Is the platform too short?
The Yarm rooftops show how much new building has gone on behind Yarm High Street. I was surprised to learn this morning that Teesside, unlike other conurbations does not have a formal Greenbelt, protecting the surrounding countryside.

I spotted the church in which my daughter, Judith, was baptized some sixty-four years ago.
St. Mary Magdalene?
Just a guess, but maybe they don’t stop at Stockton because of the lack of car parking at Stockton station. Eaglescliffe has recently had additional parking space added.
