Kim and I recently spent a few days at the coast in northern England. Inspired by Ian Purves’ photos of Chemical Beach, and others linked from his site, we called in at Seaham to take a look. The weather and time of day wasn’t great for shots of the beach, so we spent most of our time at Seaham’s small industrial harbour. Below are a few of shots I took.
If you do visit and fancy a snack/lunch etc, we stopped at Leaf, Bark, and Berries on North Terrace and thought it was great.
Anyway, if you want to go Chemical Beach, there is a small road on your right as you drive into Seaham, indicated on the map below. Just follow it to the car park. Alternatively just carry on along the A182 to get to the harbour.
