This week, we’re looking at an area of Hartlepool which has long been a popular part of town.

And we’re asking, who can identify with these shots which were all taken in the Burn Valley area?

One shows the Burn Valley roundabout in a photograph believed to have been taken in the 1960s. Who remembers when the area looked like this?

Another shows the Elwick Road School fair in the Burn Valley Gardens back in the 1950s. Do any readers remember those days?

The third shows people having fun in the snow in 2009. Spot anyone you recognise?

The fourth comes from a fun day in 2004. Were you there and what do you remember about it?
