Beadnell Village

eadnell village is situated on the Heritage Coastline and is noted for beautiful natural scenery. The people are warm and friendly.

ithin 10 minutes walking distance, (fewer minutes by car!) from Low Dover, you will find St. Ebba’s Church. There is a Post Office & general dealer. The Village Cafe, fish & chip shop with cafe, a public house and a hotel, all provide a variety of inexpensive good food.
istorically, Beadnell evolved around agriculture and a small fishing industry. The 18th Century harbour, built in 1798 by Thomas Wood, is unique – being the only true west facing harbour situated on the east coast of Britain.

Lime produced by the limekilns was exported from Beadnell until 1826. Grain from nearby farms was also exported. A small herring industry, based around the harbour and the adjoining Kipper Court, was pursued until 1918. Since then, the harbour has been used by a handful of fishermen, to catch crabs and lobsters using cobles, or with smaller boats for salmon or sea trout.

On Beadnell Point, also known as Ebb’s Neuk, lies the ruins of the 13th Century Ebba’s Chapel, on the site of a 7th Century chapel, the latter built when Christianity first evolved in Northumbria.
