Town of Middlesbrough
The town and borough of Middlesbrough, in the North East of England, with a population of about 140,000, has been unitary authority since 1996, although for ceremonial purposes it is considered part of the county of North Yorkshire. From 1974 to 1996, Middlesbrough was a metropolitan district in the short-lived and now defunct metropolitan county of Cleveland. From 1968 to 1974, Middlesbrough was part of the county borough of Teeside, which had merged the county borough of Middlesbrough (formed 1889) with the municipal borough of Stockton-on-Tees. Until 1974, Middlesbrough was considered part of the North Riding of Yorkshire.
