Pictures of Stockton-on-Tees
in the county of County Durham
Interestingly, a famous son of Stockton was Thomas Sheraton (1751-1806) furniture designer. Sheraton was born in the town and spent much of his early life there. Before coming to fame he travelled the area as a cabinet maker. John Walker invented and sold the first friction match from his Chemist shop in the High Street in 1827. Thinking there was no money in it, he failed to patent his invention, leaving others to profit.
Preston Park is a pleasant place to visit and Preston Hall Museum tells of the history of the town, its industries and its people. The River Tees has become a focus for leisure pursuits, boats can be hired and pleasure boats carry passengers on interesting river trips.

Random England fact:
On Christmas Eve in 1801 Richard Trevithick demonstrated his "Puffing Devil" , a high pressure steam engine which was for the first time mounted on wheels and self propelled. This was the first ever successful passenger carrying road vehicle ie the first car. Sadly a few days later on another trial it toppled over on the then uneven roads,after being righted and moved to the stable of the nearest tavern it blew up and destroyed itself and the stable-- no one had extinguished the boiler!!!
