A large village, situated on the north Northumberland coast within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty about 20 miles from Alnwick and eight miles southeast of Belford, Seahouses is a working fishing port which also serves as the embarkation point for visitors to the Farne Islands. The most prominent feature is the harbour, known as ‘North Sunderland Harbour’, was developed as the newer, seaward end of North Sunderland. Built by Lord Crewe’s trustees to accommodate 300 fishing vessels, it was opened in June 1889 at a cost of £25,000. Providing a means of transportation to the lime quarries excavated to the south of the village with coal for burning the lime coming from mines to the north and west, grain was also exported. The arrival of the railway allowed the fishing industry to grow and thrive with herring fishing becoming synonymous with life in Seahouses but it caused a decline in the mining industries. Between 1898 and 1951, Seahouses was the north-eastern terminus of the North Sunderland Railway which was independent until its closure, forming a standard guage railway link to Chathill. The site of the original station is now a car park. The decline in the fishing industry has enabled the village to adapt to tourism and is now a popular resort with a lot to offer.
