About this book

The Northumberland coastline stretches from the outskirts of Newcastle up to the Scottish border at Berwick-upon-Tweed – a popular holiday destination for its wild and sweeping landscape of endless beaches of pale sand, succession of spectacular castles like Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh, congenial resorts like Alnmouth, and unique offshore attractions like Holy Island and the Farne Islands.

Now, Roland Tarr's new Trail Guide – Northumberland Coast Path maps out the walker's route along the entire coast, starting from the centre of Newcastle and including an extension beyond Berwick to the seabird crags of St Abb's Head. Along the way Northumberland Coast Path covers the remarkable industrial heritage of this coastline – the coalmining town of Ashington that gave birth to both the Ashington Group of Pitmen Painters and the Charlton brothers – and its fabulous wildlife, with seals and puffins off the shore. From a handsome Tyneside city to a distinguished border town straddling the Tweed, this is a superbly bracing walking country for the ever-increasing number of tourists who discover Northumberland every year.
