Stockton on tees, where the match was invented, played a major part in the prioneering of railway,and nestling next to middlesbrough in the so called tees valley, the hight street is **** mecca with **** shops and **** bars, would not recommend it unless you are a redneck or wear a pink adidas tracksuit. ingleby barwick or spam city, one of the biggest housing estates in the country is money meets *****, its for people who want a new house to keep up with the jones but is a cheaper and larger version of footballers wives or wynyard- do not get me started on that place, its where victoria beckham would feel right at home if david got transferred to hartlepool! Yarm 10 years ago was nice market town – now on a weekend its like venice- the local flee whilst all the drunken morens descend to hovelise the place for 48 hrs. Billingham – just a dump unless you live in wolviston. most or the national **** sykline associated with middlesbrough actually is in stockton. good points about stockton the a19 and a66 are near. has good university i think!
