Moving to Hartlepool?

This large coastal town has a wealth of amenities and cultural significance, and yet it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Nothing illustrates this as perfectly as the way the town’s population has embraced their nickname: “The Monkey Hangers.” This odd moniker is steeped in local folklore but endures to this day. According to legend, during the Napoleonic wars a French ship was spotted sinking just off the Hartlepool coast. Within the remains of the shipwreck, only one survivor was found washed up on the beach – a monkey wearing a miniature naval uniform. As the local populace had never seen a French person before, let alone a monkey, the mob soon decided that the poor little primate was a French spy! It’s fairly obvious how this tale ends…

Regardless, most Hartlepudlians look on this reputation with affection and prefer to own the joke. During derby football matches between Hartlepool United and Darlington, there may be many chants and taunts about “who hanged the monkey” but ultimately the fans are unfazed. The team’s mascot is H’Angus the Monkey after all!

There are various landmarks in and around Hartlepool. The Historic Quay is an open air museum which is home to the permanently moored HMS Trincomalee. The headlands has the Heugh Battery Museum, which has Second World War gun emplacements, military vehicles and small arms. The town also has beautiful open spaces such as Ward Jackson Park. There is much, much, more to discover too.
