The Village

The walls of Beadnell Harbour were built in the 1790s, as were the limekilns, which are now under the protection of the National Trust. The village has been inhabited for several thousand years, and Bronze-Age burial chambers have been discovered along the shore. Just east of the harbour, at Ebb's Neuk Point, lie the ruins of a 13th century chapel. Legend has it that Oswald, King of Northumbria, built the original for his sister, St Ebba, in the 7th century.
