Photograph Albums
Delaval Hall, The Church of Our Lady and Old Village

About the Site  is an online photograph album, containing historic photographs of the village of Seaton Delaval, in south-east Northumberland.

The album also contains newer photographs of some of the local landmarks . These include Seaton Delaval Hall, (1718-1728).  When the current Lord Hastings died in April 2007, his heir sold the Hall to the National Trust.  They have carried out extensive renovations, which have improved the Hall for visitors.

You can find out more about special events, and regular opening times, by visiting the National Trust website.

Also included in this site is a section on the Church of Our Lady.  Originally the private chapel of Delavals, this small but beautiful church adjoins the Hall. The Church is of significant interest in its own right, as it dates back to Norman times.  It contains some very fine examples of funeral hatchments.  There are also some well-preserved stone effigies of a Crusader Knight and his Lady. 

Photographs of the village document local changes, designed to invoke memories of the ‘old days’.
