Shopping on Church Street in 1974.

School days, shopping and working at the pits - memories of life in Seaham

We are rolling back the clock and taking a trip down Seaham’s memory lane.

We would love to hear your memories of life growing up in the town, from working at the pits, to shopping in Church Street or going to school and making friends for life. Contact our nostalgia correspondent Chris Cordner on chris.cordner@jpimedia.co.uk to share your stories.
