Former St. Hilda's Church Bells Mar 22, 2017
If you have not overlooked this sculpture completely, you may ask yourself what this thing with the eight old bells is all about. These are the bells of the former church of St. Hilda's which was located in the former old town „over the border“ (north of the railway line).

The bells are amongst the very few items preserved from Middlesbrough's former main church which was demolished in 1969 after decades of neglection. They were cast in 1864 and paid for by local businessmen (including Bolckow and Vaughan) as well as local clergy. The bells were hung up in 1975 in a side street close to All Saint's Church. In 2005, the current sculpture was placed at the junction of Grange Road and Linthorpe Road. In St. Hilda's, only a brick pedestal which marks the spot of the former church altar remains. For more information about this spot, have a look at the reviews about St. Hilda's / Middlehaven.
