The Stockton and District Tramways Company was a short lived tramway operator, surviving for only 3 years. In 1893 it took over the services operated by the Stockton and Darlington Steam Tramway Company which had run into financial difficulty.
It was unable to make the tramway pay and in 1896 it sold out to the Imperial Tramways Company. Steam services continued for a few months until the route was closed for modernisation, to later re-open as the Middlesbrough, Stockton and Thornaby Electric Tramways Company.
