Seaham Harbour is unusual in being an artificial anchorage created between 1828 and 1831 by the hollowing-out of a former limestone headland. An original Stephenson locomotive was used until the late 1950s on harbour maintenance work and a paddle tug, The Eppleton Hall, for many years plied the South Dock of the harbour before becoming an exhibit at the maritime museum in San Francisco.
