Self-supporting elliptical staircase in Binns department store in Middlesbrough, designed by Gordon Jeeves (Chartered Architects), built by Leslies of Darlington & London, 1957. I've been up and down these stairs so many times, and never noticed how wonderful they were!

On the afternoon of 14 March, 1881, a booming sound was heard over north-east Yorkshire. A few seconds later, at 3.35pm, workmen at a railway siding in Middlesbrough heard a rushing or roaring sound overhead, followed by a thud, as something buried itself in the embankment nearby, just yards away from where they were working. They went to investigate and found a vertical hole in the ground with the meteorite at the bottom.
