Blast Beach



Blast Beach was once hidden deep below waste from Dawdon Colliery which was one of the last Durham mines to close. After the mine clean-up, you now have a spectacular stretch of coastline with empty beaches, high cliffs and wildflowers.

This is a great location to head out and explore Durham’s Heritage Coast.

Car parking is available at Nose’s Point.
