The town of Seaham stands proud on the Durham coast in the north-east of England. Seaham once built ships. Fine, sturdy wooden sailing ships. The shipyards are now gone; the patent slipways, pontoons, dry docks, workshops are all gone and no trace remains to remind Seaham of this once flourishing industry. This book documents the fine history of shipbuilding at Seaham between 1832 and 1899.
