The monument at Eston Nab can be seen, beyond the far side of the Tees Bay, to the south.
The town's first charter was received before 1185, for which it gained its first mayor, an annual two-week fair and a weekly market.
By the Middle Ages Hartlepool was growing into an important (though still small) market town, one of the reasons for its escalating wealth being that its harbour was serving now as the official port of the County Palatine of Durham.
Christ Church was built from materials excavated to build the new docks during the industrial revolution, and intended to satisfy the spiritual needs of the new workforce.
It is now Hartlepool's art gallery and visitor centre.
