Architecture in the Headland Mar 21, 2017
The Headland is the oldest area of Hartlepool and has some interesting buildings. Many of them are presented in the Headland Story Trail, others (such as St. Hilda's Church) are important enough to have reviews on their own. Here is a collection of buildings which can be considered as landmarks in the headland – but do not fall into the two categories above.

Morison Hall: Once a 19th century Methodist Church, it was taken over by a Christian Youth Organisation called “The Boys' Brigade” and named after their founder Bertie Morison. After having spent some time in derelict state in the early 21st century, it was converted into a block of flats. The building is located next to St. Hilda's Church.

Borough Hall: Built in 1865, the red brick building has the typical Neogothic features of its time. As the centre of life in Hartlepool moved to the new city centre (former West Hartlepool) from the late 19th century on, so also did the city administration. Nowadays, the Borough Hall sees mostly music gigs, weddings and beer festivals – but still it is the largest public building in Hartlepool.

Friarage Manor House: This building from 1605 was once part of St. Hilda's Hospital, but now stands alone in a residential area off Friar Street, between St. Hilda's Church and the Heugh Gun Battery. You can still see the chimney of a former adjacent building and the place where a huge cross once hang.

St. Mary's Church: The Catholic Church of the Headland is often overlooked as it stands around a corner looking from larger St. Hilda's Church. It is a typical Victorian Neogothic church from 1850. It once had a spire which was taken down in 1946. The building is located at Durham Street behind the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
