Minimalist composition of the North Sea, Crimdon. UK
Crimdon is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated on the North Sea coast, between Blackhall Rocks and Hartlepool. Crimdon was formerly a popular holiday resort for miners and their families from nearby towns and villages, on account of its affordability for low-income workers. During the 1960s Butlins took an interest in buying the caravan park there from Easington District Council, but the sale was declined as Butlins intended to charge people to use the beach. The 1970s and 80s saw Crimdon’s decline as a resort as the popularity of foreign travel increased. Terns now nest on the beach at Crimdon, and the area has become popular with birdwatchers as tourism has waned.
