Walton and Campbell Courts, Portrack, 2014

As can be seen, Stockton Council have made a real effort to make Walton Court and the grassy area more appealing. I guess that gas has replaced coal for heating in the flats, but how is it done today. Gas fired or individual central heating?

  1. Roy, this is the same, and the sketch of Walton Court 1972 was done by me. Here I have to thank Sid Buckley at Richard Hind, as Art Master, for teaching those who were not much good, how to draw.

    Where do you live now? I effectively left in 1966.


  2. Please may I assume this is the same Walton Court that was the subject of a black and white image sent recently? That being the case, I have to give Stockton Council 10/10 for the transformation. Many thanks Fred. I say this repeatedly, I really must return to Stockton for a visit. I left Teesside in 1963 and find Picture Stockton Archive hugely interesting and, at times, rather emotional.
