  • The Ghost Ships

    South of Seaton on the road to Port clarence, just beyond the roundabout where you turn to the nuclear power station, you can get a good view of the ghost ships.

    Poeple go running on the beach, right from Seaton Carew, over the dunes and along to the power station. And back again.

    Equipment: The usual.

Seaton Carew General

  • typical seaside fare

    Wherever you go in the United Kingdom where the sea attracts people, the ubiquitous ice cream vans, shops selling rock and candy, beach toys like buckets and spades and shrimping nets vie with the general shops. And don't forget fish and chips. Watching the waves break on the shore while out at sea, large ships set out for foreign lands.

  • Sandcastles?

    There's a small-scale business operation at the south end of the beach (by the power station) that ships sand by road. You have to watch out for the digger when your in this vicinity.

  • More Industry

    The huge oil refineries, oil storage depots and chemical works of Seal Sands stand on the opposite side of Greatham Creek (but deceptively on the same south side of the Tees as we're standing).
