About the Site
Seaton Delaval is a village in south-east Northumberland, in England. Seaton Delaval Photograph Album (seatondelaval.org.uk) is a place to share memories about the village and surrounding areas.
The album contains photographs showing everyday life from bygone years. It also documents the changing face of the village. There are also some more recent photographs of local landmarks. These include Seaton Delaval Hall, built in the early 1700s for the Delaval family. Now owned by the National Trust, the hall is undergoing a period of renovation. It is open to the public, and further details can be found on the National Trust’s website. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/seaton-delaval-hall
Another local landmark featured in the album is the Church of Our Lady. Originally the private chapel of the Delavals, this small but beautiful church is adjacent to Seaton Delaval Hall. Dating back to Norman times, it contains some very fine examples of funeral hatchments. Also look out for the well-preserved stone effigies of a Crusader Knight and his Lady.
