Holywell Dene


Holywell Dene is the valley of Seaton Burn, which stretches 6km between the villages of Seghill, passing close to Holywell and Old Hartley, and flowing out to the sea at Seaton Sluice. Most of the Dene is part of the Delaval Estate. In 2000 the Estate granted Northumberland and North Tyneside Councils a 99-year lease of the Dean; who then designated their areas Local Nature Reserves.[1] Holywell Dean has areas of ancient semi natural woodland and salt marsh in the tidal flood plain.
