Seaton Delaval Hall, Northumberland
The Delaval family was granted land in south east Northumberland at the end of the 11th century. The family name changed in 1814 when the estate passed through the female line to Sir Jacob Astley. His son and heir became Lord Hastings. The estate was largely agricultural land but coal was mined here by 1291 up to 1960. This walk takes in reminders of both agricultural and coal industries, as well as wooded parkland.
