Chemical Beach - Wooden Groyne - Seaham - County Durham

Chemical Beach in Seaham got its name from the nearby ‘Watson, Kipling and Co.’s Chemical Works’. Built in 1863 and soon began trading in soda crystals and magnesia. The company was successful and sent one shipload per week to markets in London and Ostend. The area also featured a 1900s iron mine, a glass bottle works and Dawdon colliery. The remnants of the colliery track and equipment still remain on the beach. The wheels are from an old ‘Chaldron’ wagon that formed part of a train that tipped mine spoil into the sea.


All images are printed on Lustre paper, featuring a very natural photographic finish reminiscent of traditional photographic printing. Lustre prints are very resistant to fingerprints, scratches and scuffs and feature a semi-matt finish with minimal glare, ideal for landscape photography.

Only 9"x6" prints and framed prints come with a white mount.
