Town of Hartlepool
The county borough of Hartlepool, in the North East of England, has a population of about 88,000 and, since 1996, has been unitary authority. Prior to then, Hartlepool was a district of the now defunct metropolitan county of Cleveland, which had been formed in 1974. After the abolition of Cleveland in 1996, Hartlepool was placed back for ceremonial purposes in County Durham. Until 1974, Hartlepool (covering an area somewhat smaller than the present borough) had been a county borough in County Durham, and was formed in 1967 by the merger of the county borough of West Hartlepool with its smaller, but older, neighbour, the municipal borough of (old) Hartlepool. Hartlepool, a port on the North Sea, is on the north side of the river Tees estuary.
