Northumberland coast

Just back from a few cold, wet and windy days hiking in Northumberland, working on a new Cicerone guidebook to St Oswald’s Way, St Cuthbert’s Way and the Northumberland Coast Path. On this visit I started from Alnmouth and followed the coast up to Craster, then from Seahouses to Bamburgh, and around Budle Bay (a very long day with an enormous detour inland) to Beal. Crossed the sands to Holy Island (Lindisfarne) at low tide and spent the day there before returning on the next low tide, and on the final day followed the coast up to Berwick-upon-Tweed.
