Tea Times At Beadnell

A Memory of Beadnell

My name is Sean Sweet. I have many memories of Beadnell. My Grandparents owned a cottage near the harbour called Sandy Dell and later my parents had a static caravan on the links.
Every summer seemed to be hot and sunny and we always had great adventures, and it always seemed as if we were the first people ever to set foot on the beach, and the first people to discover the long Nanny, and although tea times at home were boring, tea times at the caravan were fantastic - fish and chips from Seahouses.
Although my family no longer have the cottage or the caravan I still return to Beadnell with my children and bore them with stories about the summers I had along that stretch of coast line.
I will always have a place in my heart for that little fishing village.
