Seaham Hall Beach (Remand Home) Photo

Seaham Hall Beach (Remand Home) - County Durham

Interpretive sculpture, Vane Tempest car park, Seaham

The sculpture by Michael Johnson has plaques representing the ground plans of Seaham Hall and the church of St Mary the Virgin. The church can be seen to the left of the prominent building, Greystones [[1707617]]. The Hall lies to its left among trees. The plaques detail elements of local history including Seaham village which existed around the church as early as the C9th. Expansion of Seaham Hall and creation of Seaham Harbour to the south, in the C19th, led to its demise.
