Some of the many memories of The Wesley in Hartlepool over the years. (Photo: Mail)
Perhaps you partied there in the Nineties and early 2000s when it operated as a busy nightclub or exercised in its gym.
Or for older generations, it may be where you worshipped or attended its youth club.
We have looked back through our archives to bring you a selection of pictures of the building from its earliest days right up to work starting on the latest regeneration project.
The Wesley welcomed many revellers during the 1990s to early 2000s after it was turned into a nightclub. This picture is of a disco night put on for teenagers in the late 90s. (Photo: Mail) The Wesley Nightclub. (Photo: TC) At the same time as being a nightclub, the Wesley also houses a plush gym and health club. Kerry Matthews is pictured here on one of the gym's exercise bikes. (Photo: OP) Did you take a dip in the gym's pool? (Photo: FLR) Another view of the health club from over 20 years ago. (Photo: FLR) The gym had a good variety of fitness equipment. (Photo: FLR) The Wesley chapel pictured in its heyday, resplendent with flag flying from the roof. The Grand Hotel had not been built when this photograph was taken dating it to pre 1899.To the right of the picture is Fountain Terrace. In the distance is the West Hartlepool Technical College. (Photo: Mail) The Wesley chapel opened in 1873 and later additions included a schoolroom and social institute to reflect Methodist ideals of education, social responsibility and charitable work.This picture is of a fashion show in Wesley Hall but the date is unknown. (Photo: Hartlepool Mail) Wesley Chapel closed in 1973 and the building and square became overgrown for many years before being regenerated in the 1990s.

(Photo: Mail) Who remembers The Emporium bar underneath the Wesley on Victoria Road which continued to serve customers for a number of years after the nightclub above closed down?
