Seaham, The Harbour c.1955

Memories of Seaham


When Seaham Hall was used as a T B hospital this extension was built at the side, we used to walk through the hall grounds on our way to the beach from New Seaham and the French Windows were always open and the beds wheeled outside even in the winter, we always felt quite sorry for the patients. Later on my aunty who was a nurse (...Read full memory)

THE MEN WOULD BRING THE BOATS IN AND HANG BUNCHES OF CRABS AND FISH ON THE RAIL SO WE COULD CHOOSE OUR OWN.

This photo means a lot to me as my Mam Lexi Hudson (née Murray), used to take me down the docks and down the ledges where she learned to swim years earlier with the swimming club. I did learn to swim then as it was the only option to drowning!

I remember working on the old steam engine known as the 'coffee pot' on the dock bottom with Matty Ward and Dempsey Thyne I would like to know if either person is still with us. If anyone knows EMAIL me on diggerveg@hotmail.co.uk Thank You.
