Seaton Sluice

  • Description

    House on Rocky Island, Seaton Sluice. This is now the only residence on the Island. However, back in 1901 there were 63 people living on the Island in 16 houses (1901 Census). The houses were owned by Lord Hastings as art of the Delaval Estate. There was only one tap, shared by all the residents on Rocky Island. The houses had outside toilets, but no mains drainage. By the 1960's the houses were considered unfit for habitation and were subsequently demolished.
