Northumberland is the northernmost county in England, the least populated and one of the most dramatic, abundant with sand, sea and castles, remote bays and headlands
Travel with the author through the coastline of Northumberland, from the southern border to its northern boundary with Scotland. From the river Tyne and its industrial heritage, the journey navigates the resorts of Tynemouth and Whitley Bay, through the lighter industry of Blyth to the wide expanse of Druridge Bay where a wilder coastline begins. As the journey continues northwards past Amble the coast is speckled with the villages of Alnmouth, Boulmer, Craster, Embleton, Low Newton, Beadnell, Seahouses, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne to arrive at Berwick, the northern boundary of the county and the Scottish border. Amidst the villages are scattered the bays, promontories, coves and sands of this sparsely populated landscape.
This is a journey that will invoke memories, curiosity and enthusiasm for this wonderful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It will amuse and inspire, engage and surprise. Over 100 colour photographs and there are plenty of pubs too.
