Come to Seaham for a seaside guided walk!

Seaham Townscape Initiative have commissioned me to lead some guided walks in 2023 and they will be happening every month from April to August. There are two to choose from, the first starts at the north end near Seaham Hall, takes in the Anglo-Saxon site and its ancient church follows the coast and ends at the East Durham Heritage Centre, site at the former lifeboat building. This houses the recovered and restored George Elmy lifeboat. The second walk starts in town at the Tommy statue and will navigate much of the town and then down to Dalden Tower, a medieval tower house. From there we work back up through the town and point out some historical industrial sites. For both walks we will cover the fascinating geological history and formation of coal and the cliffs, its development by the 3rd Marquis of Londonderry and heiress wife, Frances Vane Ann-Tempest and their descendants. To book either email or telephone using the number below.

Here are some of the highlights:
