Seaton Burn Memories

A Heritage Lottery-funded project with students and staff from Seaton Burn College.

Seaton Burn is an ex-mining village in North Tyneside. Our aim was to explore and present the history of the village and show how interesting it was by interviewing residents and creating a CMS website. Students organised coffee mornings and afternoons, chatted with residents of local care homes, and interviewed people in their homes.

A Seaton Burn Heritage Trail was designed, and three large interpretation panels, plus ten English Heritage-style plaques, were installed at various locations around Seaton Burn. This is all tied together with a leaflet describing the trail, and the Seaton Burn Memories website.

The Seaton Burn Heritage Trail was opened on Saturday 5 July 2014 by Mayor Norma Redfearn.
