Hartlepool is a town in County Durham, England. The town lies on the North Sea coast, 7.5 miles (12 km) north of Middlesbrough and 17 miles (27 km) south of Sunderland. It was founded in the 7th century AD, around the Northumbrian monastery of Hartlepool Abbey. The village grew in the Middle Ages and its harbour served as the official port of the County Palatine of Durham. After a railway link from the north was established from the South Durham coal fields, an additional link from the south, in 1835, together with a new port, resulted in further expansion, with the new town of West Hartlepool.
