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.
