successful single

to date, ''Wonderful (Wonderful (Adam Ant album))''. The title track was a successful single, as was a tour of the U.S. in support of the album. While Ant and his group (which retained longtime guitarist Pirroni) played in smaller venues than they had played in the 1980s, the houses were often packed with enthusiastic fans. The tour was cut short due to Ant and Pirroni both contracting glandular fever. Ant, A., ''Stand and Deliver: The Autobiography'', p298 Ant also played three shows at Shepherds Bush Empire in London and did a mini tour of Virgin Record (Virgin Records) Shops playing selected tunes from the album ''Wonderful'' and signing records. Adam and his band also played shows in Dublin, Glasgow, Middlesbrough and Stoke-on-Trent. The Royal Albert Hall could be filled many times over with people wishing to attend the Last Night. To accommodate these people, and to cater for those who are not near London, the Proms in the Park concerts were started in 1996. Initially there was only one, in Hyde Park (Hyde Park, London), adjacent to the Hall. More locations have been added in recent years, and in 2005, Belfast, Glasgow, Swansea and Manchester hosted a Last Night Prom in the Park which was broadcast live from each venue. 2007 saw Manchester's prom being replaced by one in Middlesbrough. 2008 featured a reduction from 5 to 4 Proms in the Park, in Hyde Park, Belfast, Glasgow and Swansea. 2009 returned to a total of 5 Proms in the Park, in Hyde Park, Glasgow, Swansea, County Down and Salford (Salford, Greater Manchester). Each location has its own live concert, typically playing the countries' respective national anthems, before joining in a live big screen video link up with the Royal Albert Hall for the traditional finale. Access thumb right Highcliff Nab (File:Highcliffe Nab.jpg) Two main roads cross at Guisborough, the A171 (A171 road) and the A173 (A173 road). The A171 leads west to Middlesbrough and east to Whitby whilst the A173 goes south-west to Stokesley and north-east as far as Skelton (Skelton-in-Cleveland) where it joins the A174 (A174 road) coast road. Before the bypass (Bypass route) was built, traffic on both of these had to pass through Westgate, the town's main street. Just outside the bypass to the north-east, a B-road heads north from the A173 to Redcar. Another minor route out of the town, Wilton Lane, is a very windy almost single-track which leads north to the small village of Wilton (Wilton, Redcar and Cleveland), whence one can either join the A174 or continue onto the ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries) Wilton chemical works. As well as these, there are two lanes that lead out of town into the hills; Hutton Lane which ends at Hutton Village, a tiny settlement built mostly for local mining, agricultural and estate workers, and Belmangate, an ancient funeral route. There are no longer any large employers in the town: Guisborough has become a commuter town for nearby Middlesbrough, with many people working in the chemical plants that are located around Teesside. Whitby's cultural and historical heritage contribute to the local economy. The town suffers from the economic constraints of its remote location, poor transport infrastructure, and limitations on available land and property, so tourism and fishing remain the mainstay of the its economy. It is the closest port to a proposed wind farm development in the North Sea, WikiPedia:Middlesbrough Dmoz:Regional Europe United Kingdom England Cleveland Middlesbrough Commons:Category:Middlesbrough

in the UK, although a promotional video was shot by the distinguished photographer Martin Parr and it was serviced to some UK radio stations.

The album followed their previous ''Disco'' albums, but this one also included new songs as well as remixes. The Ouse is the name given to the river after its confluence with the Ure at Ouse Gill Beck. The River Wharfe, which drains Wharfedale, joins the Ouse upstream of Cawood. The Rivers Aire (River Aire) and Calder (River Calder, West Yorkshire) are more southerly contributors to the River Ouse and the most southerly Yorkshire tributary is the River Don (River Don, South Yorkshire), which flows northwards to join the main river at Goole. In the far north of the county the River Tees flows eastwards through Teesdale and empties its waters into the North Sea downstream of Middlesbrough. The smaller River Esk (River Esk, North Yorkshire) flows from west to east at the northern foot of the North York Moors to reach the sea at Whitby. '''North East England''' is one of the nine official regions of England. It covers Northumberland, County Durham, Tyne and Wear, and Teesside (including parts of North Yorkshire). The only cities in the region are Durham, Newcastle upon Tyne and Sunderland (City of Sunderland). Other large settlements in the region include: Darlington, Gateshead, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar, South Shields, Stockton-on-Tees. The region is home to three UK conurbations: Teesside, Wearside, and the largest Tyneside which is the sixth most populous conurbation in the United Kingdom (List of conurbations in the United Kingdom). Rail The East Coast Main Line cuts through the region with stops at Newcastle (Newcastle Central Railway Station), Durham (Durham railway station) and Darlington (Darlington railway station), providing fast connections to London and Edinburgh. The region is also served by the Durham Coast Line which connects Sunderland (Sunderland, Tyne and Wear), Hartlepool and Middlesbrough with the main line. East Coast (East Coast (train operating company)), based in York and the only current nationalised railway company in the UK, has services along the full length of the ECML, to Edinburgh and beyond and is the operator of most of the stations on the route. Grand Central Railway since December 2007 has linked Sunderland, and Teesside with London, being non-stop from York onwards; it does not have electric trains and uses the Northallerton–Eaglescliffe Line and Durham Coast Line. Local services along these lines, and most other local routes in the North East are provided by Northern (Northern Rail), based in Manchester. First TransPennine Express, also based in Manchester, have long-distance services from Newcastle and Middlesbrough to Manchester, via West Yorkshire.

Middlesbrough

'''Middlesbrough''' ( the Middlesbrough built-up area sub-division had a population of 174,700, which itself is part of the larger built-up area of Teesside and had an overall population of 376,333 at the 2011 census.

Middlesbrough was in North Riding of the county of York (1837–89), an administrative county was created with a county council in 1889 under the Local Government Act 1888, In 1968 it became the centre of the County Borough of Teesside, which was then absorbed by the non-metropolitan county of Cleveland (Cleveland, England) in 1974. In 1996, Cleveland was abolished, and Middlesbrough became a unitary authority, within the ceremonial county (ceremonial counties of England) of North Yorkshire.

"''Erimus''" ("We shall be"), in Latin, was chosen as Middlesbrough's motto in 1830, to signify the town's will to grow. It is used in the names of commercial ventures and other organisations in the town, including social clubs. The town's coat of arms show an azure lion beneath 2 ships to represent the port of Middlesbrough. The design is based on that of the Brus (Bruce clan) family who owned the site on which Middlesbrough is built.
