History

Caption for Seahouses, The Harbour C1965

As well as fishing, boat trips to the Farne Islands start from here. In AD676 St Cuthbert chose to live in seclusion on Inner Farne and remained there for eight years until his elevation to bishop. Cuthbert was away from the island for only two years before he chose to return, dying a few months later.

Memories of Seahouses

Seahouses, Early 80's

I remember going to Seahouses for my first ever holiday (I may have been on others, but I don't remember them). It was in the early 80's and we were visiting Charlie + Lilian Dawson who were family friends of my grandparents. I remember very little, but some of the very clear memories I do have are going on a ride outside the Co-Op and not getting out even with the temptation of an ice cream. I also remember being on someone's shoulders and watching the boats come in with their latest catch. Also sure that was when I had fish and chips for the first time.

There were a number of such incidences - falling off walls, banks and rocky promontories on the Northumberland coast. I don't believe my late father ever got his head around how mischeivous young children could be, while I developed a habit of falling off things with skill, eventually doing so down gulleys and couloirs of the high French Alps on 2m long skis or a mono-board.

A Holiday In South Street, Seahouses March 2004

A friend let me stay in her wee fisherman's cottage in Seahouses for an early holiday in March 2004. My wife Elizabeth and I drove up from our home in Watford through the unseasonal snow and we were quite worried about getting there at all! We had brought our elderly cat, Socks, with us as ...Read full memory

Boat Names.

Boat BK103 was named the 'Xmas Star'. I was skipper for 8 years between December 1957 and November 1965. The family had two new boats afterwards called Radiant Way BK210 and Radiant Way LH147.
