Church Square

Church Square will be developed as a high quality public open space framing the Church and surrounding heritage buildings and creating a facility for public outdoor events and exhibitions.  The project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).



  • Church Square is now complete.
  • The Church Square revamp includes a large oval event space encircled by trees and raised seating outside Hartlepool Art Gallery.
  • Natural materials were utilised in the construction of Church Square, including granite and clay pavers, to enhance the setting of the Grade II listed Christ Church and the surrounding Church Street conservation area.
  • A market takes place on the last Saturday of every month.
  • A business association has been launched, offering support for local businesses in the area, and to develop a programme of events and activities.

Next Steps

  • Final snagging works are underway.
