Up to the early 19th Century, Seaham was but a small rural agricultural community with the claim to fame of a local land-owners daughter marrying Lord Byron. However, fortunes rapidly changed for the town when a harbour was built to aid the transport of goods from local industries. In 1905, the harbour was further extended and deepened to cope with the shipping of vast tonnes of coal mined in and around Seaham, serving the collieries well until the last pits closed in 1992. Whilst proud of its past, Seaham is enthusiastic about its future with the last two decades seeing a big regeneration programme implemented. Durham’s coastline has been designated as a “Heritage Coast” and Seahams beach has been restored in its entirety.
Proud of its outdoor leisure facilities, the town hosts four parks that offer something for everyone. Many will delight in Deneside Park with its manicured lawns, stone bridges and walkways. Seaham Town Park, Dawdon and Parkside presents all the outdoor sports for those that are a little more enthusiastic such as football, cricket or golf.
