Seaton Delaval

Seaton Delaval is a village in Northumberland. It is the largest of five villages in Seaton Valley and the site of Seaton Delaval Hall, completed by Sir John Vanbrugh in 1727. 'Seaton' means 'sea town', referring to the village's nearness to the North Sea. The land was once held by the de la Val family, who took their name from Le Val in Normandy.
