Overview of Blackhall Rocks, County Durham

Blackhall Rocks is a village on the North Sea coast of County Durham, England. It is situated on the A1086 between Horden and Hartlepool, and just south of Blackhall Colliery which it adjoins. It is sometimes referred to by locals in the area as "The Rocks". One of the earliest mentions of Blackhall Rocks is in the mid-19th century, when the beach was photographed. This was a time when the beach was part of a minor holiday resort, due to the location of a hotel above the cliffs. It was around this time a railways station was established here, which was closed by the Dr Beeching Axe in the 1960s. The hotel remained up until the 1970s when it was demolished, at a time when it had been used as apartments, as a form of temporary housing, by Easington (district) Council, since the 1940s. Despite the presence of the hotel, it was not until the 1920s and 1930s that Blackhall Rocks really developed as a community and village, something which is itself evident driving down the "coast road". Most of the houses along this road were built for middle class commuters, hence the proliferation of semi-detached houses and bungalows. In the late 1930s the local council built a large council estate to the west of the coast road, around the road to High Hesleden. Later on in the 1960s and 1970s a series of new council homes were built to the east, between the coast road and the railway line.
