I like the look of this watering hole Keith ~ All the best ~ nick
It's not bad at all Nick. They even put bands on occasionally.
I'm (still) always hearing about Seaton Sluice Keith - how "we went for holidays and we caught the train to so and so and then the bus etc."
This is the first time I have seen a picture of I reckon and seen where it is on't map.
It looks a canny place, a sort of northern (more northern) Staithes.
Nice one my friend - David
4 pubs doing pub lunches (some very very good), a club and a popular fish and chip restaurant. Not as purdy as Staithes but worth a visit.
ps: The local m'lord built a railway from Monkseaton added a station and was prepared to change the name from Seaton Sluice to Collywell Bay, in order to attract hordes of tourists, but for some reason it was abandoned before the line opened. If you move the map to the southern end of Seaton Sluice/Hartley, you will notice the course of the line, joining the houses where it says "W End".
Cripes..... I see it Keith - Collywell Bay (Colly Wobble?) has a nice if amusing ring to it. Shame it fell through.........
A little research has revealed that, although most of the works were completed, all progress was halted at the start of WWI and then never resumed. A great pity.
As you say, a pity.
