Middlesbrough is a large industrial town in North Yorkshire, north-east England. Middlesbrough is becoming a leading progressive, cultural and cosmopolitan location to live and work. The town is in one of the relatively drier parts of the country and is sheltered by both the Lake District and Pennines to the west.

The symbol of Middlesbrough’s industrial heritage is the Tees Transporter bridge (pic above). This 102-year-old steel bridge is the longest of its kind remaining in the world.
