Neighbourhood Plan

A neighbourhood plan will be developed by the three parishes of North Sunderland, Bamburgh and Beadnell looking at the people who live, work, go to school, shop or have social connections to the area. All the areas have faced significant development pressure in the past and it seems obvious that this will continue in the future too. Find out more by visiting the website, and why not attend the meeting on the 21st January 2014 at the Seahouses Community Centre at 7pm.

Geese Migration

This morning (7/1/14) saw a huge contingent of geese flying over Seahouses on their annual migration.

Methodist Make-over

Seahouses Methodist Church unwent some stunningly beautiful remodelling work in Autumn 2013 with local contractors completing the renovation prior to the all important Christmas service. The traditional heavy wooden doors were removed and replaced by five welcoming glass doors, incorporating access for disabled visitors and an eye-cathing stained glass window replaced the once plain glass. Renovations also took place inside, improving the facilities for this popular church.

Spring tides

5th December saw some of the highest spring tides in a generation hit the whole region. Local boat operators and fishermen had a busy day ensuring their vessels remained safe and secure. The combination of wind and tide made the harbour area very dangerous and police closed the roads. The golf course was also badly hit with flooding encroaching the greens. See more photographs on our Facebook Page.

Seahouses Festive Lights

The Seahouses Festive lights team came up trumps again with a stunning lights display to lighten up the dark nights. Santa made an appearance to see them, and a very special, beautiful dragonfly light was erected in memory of a well loved local, Julie Thompson. See more photos on our Facebook Page.

as an inert mine used to exercise mine-sweeping and mine-hunting crews ensuring that the United Kingdom remain as on the world leaders in the field.

The Mk17 is a ship-laid buoyant mine that can be fitted with 11 contact horns as well as other actuation devices and weighs 560kg without the further attachments. Fitted with over 220kg of explosives, it packs a meaty punch and mines similar to this were used during WW2 not far from the Farne Islands, stretching all the way down to Hull. Converted and confirmed explosive free (don't panic!), the mine is on 'permanant loan' to the Village lights charity from Petty Officer (Mine Warfare) Barry Gardner, Royal Navy who lives locally.

Wreck Map

The local area has had some amount of coverage in recent months due to the uncovering of an old ship-wreck on Bamburgh beach, beleived to date from the 1700's. Now, due to the weather, nature has covered her up again, but you can still explore the takings of a (sometimes) cruel sea.

Farne.co.uk has produced an A1 size wreck map that are on sale now. Get your copy locally through us or by ebay for those further afield. They cost £15 and a share of the profits is to be split between Seahouses RNLI and Seahouses and District Cancer Charities. Based on an idea by John Hanvey the map shows not only wrecks but the near misses too, such as the Danio that grounded on the Islands in 2013!
