NEWS

Fair Winds & Following Seas...

 

Today saw the official departure of two long-serving Harbour officials; Harbour Master Captain Phillip Brabban and  Harbour Clerk Robert Reay.  Both gentlemen were wished a happy and long retirement during the presentation of personalised bottles of whisky on behalf of  the Harbour Commissioners by Chairman Jonathan Dawson; and thanked for their many years of collective service to North Sunderland Harbour.  Whereas Phillip is looking forward to spending some quiet time at home, Robert plans to have his hands full helping to look after his grandchildren. 

Probably better known now as Seahouses Harbour, North Sunderland Harbour (it's correct title) began life as a small wooden jetty between two natural rock promontories.   It lies to the seaward end of the village of Seahouses in North East Northumberland in close proximity to the world famous Farne Islands and today is enjoyed by thousands of visitors who come to visit the Farnes, go charter diving and angling or even simply enjoy a pleasant stroll along the piers of this picturesque Harbour.
