Answer. St. Paul's Church which was originally on Wellington Street, was dismantled and transported by lorry to Blackhall, becoming St. Andrew's Church. It is also known as the 'inside out' church as because of the pollution in Stockton over the life of the church, it was found necessary to rebuild with the dirty outside brick and stone on the inside.
If you go to Stockton Libraries Local and Family History Facebook Page you can have a go at today's question -
John Warner & Sons Iron Foundry in Norton received the original order to produce which famous bell?
Oh and what was the Mouse Man answer, Zorro?
