Station


Name and dates

Seahouses (1898-1951)

Opened on the North Sunderland Light Railway.


Description

This was a terminus in the west of Seahouses, close (but not actually at) North Sunderland Harbour. The station had a single platform with a timber building on a loop, the platform being on the west side of the loop, the opposite side from the village. The line terminated at a shed.

Two goods sidings were on the east side, with loading banks. There was a timber goods store.

It was a minimal station, in keeping with being the terminus of a light railway.

The line to Chathill closed in 1951.

The former station site is now a car park ('Seafield Car Park'). South and west of the station the trackbed remains as a dirt track.
