Middlesbrough is largest town in northeast England, growing rapidly in the 19th century from a small village to a large industrial settlement on the River Tees, built to ship coal from the newly arrived railways. New industries such as iron and steel production and shipbuilding followed and the wealth generated in Middlesbrough can be seen today in its buildings and although many industries have disappeared today they too have left a legacy of remarkable structures in the area, alongside new buildings that represent modern Middlesbrough.
