The history of modern Teesside has been inextricably linked to the industrialists that led the businesses, shaped the communities and established new charitable and philanthropic initiatives at the heart of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century manufacturing district.
In this talk by Heritage Unlocked’s Dr Tosh Warwick, he explores the role of the industrial, urban elite in everyday life, civic culture and manufacturing enterprises along the River Tees.
Focusing on the Bell and Dorman families, he reveals their role in a range of developments still part of the local area today, including the Tees Transporter Bridge, civic buildings and museums.
Dr Tosh Warwick joined Manchester Metropolitan University in January 2019 as Research Associate (Impact) in the History Research Centre. Tosh was previously Research Associate in Urban Studies at the University of Glasgow, lectured at Huddersfield, Leeds Beckett and Teesside Universities and held a number of roles in the heritage sector including as Heritage Development Officer at Middlesbrough Council where he contributed to a number of major Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) supported regeneration projects.
