Many thanks to Peter Edwards for these photos of a wall in Stockton on the corner of Inkerman Street and Bishopton Lane.

The image was uncovered late 2011 when a hoarding was removed,
Peter believed the advert relates to a 1930’s /1940 cocktail called Everybodys, but it looks like its actually a magazine that ran from the mid=40s to the mid-50s.

Sadly it will never be seen again as it was painted over late 2014.
The Saltergill Inn was said to contains a peat fire that had never gone out since the 1730s. The folklore tale is that smugglers hid the body of a murdered Customs and Excise Man under the hearth and he would never be found as long as the fire was kept burning.
The inn dates to 1648 but sadly has been closed since 2007 and is now in a poor state (not sure if anyones checked for the body under the hearth yet either)
Lealholm only had a Quaker cemetery until St. James’ Church was built around the turn of the century by Sir Francis Ley.
Before that burials were either at Danby or Glaisdale and this building housed the village hearse.
I think the date stone reads MDCCCLVI (1856)
OK, its a long way from Teesside as someone always points out, but its not something you see everyday.
One side seems to have been damaged but the opposite side carries the name “R Banks”
I believe this is part of one of the 70 miles of moorland water races built between Joseph Foord between 1747 and 1768. It would have supplied water to Gillamoor, Fadmoor and Kirkbymoorside.
The races remaining in use until the early 20th century.
This sundial near Smout House commands a fantastic view down Bransdale, the octagonal base is from the early 19th century.
The dial itself is relatively modern and carries the name Silas Higgon, as artist who still manufactures sundials today.
The reading room was first opened on Tuesday November 21st 1911, funded by Joseph Page and built by Glasweigan-based company Speirs and Company
It fell into disuse around the 1940s but thanks to recent grants has been restored.
The building is now back in regular use by Appleton Film Society and Appleton Book Club amongst others.
This weir on the River Dove above the village of Low Mill was the source of the water for the ‘Low Mill’ after which the village is named.
The weir and mill are now disused, but a mill race is shown on old maps on the west bank.
