Transcript of A Century in Stone

A Century in Stone 1801 - CLEVELAND or ' Lande of Cliffes' as it was named by the Vikings, was an obscure, largely uninhabited corner of North East England. Middlesbrough itself is little more than a farm with a population of just 25. 1825 - The Stockton Darlington Railway' is built by a group of Darlington quakers led by Edward Pease. Its purpose is to carry coal from West Durham to the small port of Stockton and also carry the paying public, making it the world's first passenger railway!
