Seaton Sluice Harbour


The harbour at Seaton Sluice was built by Sir Ralph Delaval in c.1660, to ship coal from the developing coal mines in the area. It extended the natural harbour formed by the Seaton Burn. In 1690 a sluice gate was installed to build up a head of water to wash out silt from harbour.[1] The harbour was enlarged in the mid 18th century when the 'New Cut' was built. The harbour became the focus for industry, including a glassworks, a brewery, brickworks and a quarry.[2] The last shipment of coal was in 1861, superseded by deeper harbours for larger colliers in Blyth & Newcastle. The harbour is in use today for fishing and leisure boats.
