Holy Trinity Church, North Ormesby

North Ormesby is an area in the town of Middlesbrough, in the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated just to the south of the River Tees and the A66, and is adjacent to the Cargo Fleet and South Bank areas of Middlesbrough. The Teesdale Way long distance trail passes just to the north of North Ormesby. Its name, as well as those of various streets in the locality, aludes to the support given to the initial construction of North Ormesby, a "new town", in the later 19th century by contemporary members of the nearby Ormesby-based Pennyman family.

North Ormesby is located next to Middlesbrough F.C.'s Riverside Stadium and is a popular route for match-goers.

The neighbourhood has in recent years seen something of a decline, with much of its original housing having long been demolished, partially as allowance for new developments, including, more recently, the erection of numerous new buildings and the restructuring of the A66 Redcar to Penrith trunk road which passes through the north of the area.
