Our route takes us into the tiny fishing village of Beadnell, where the old harbour built in the 1790s serviced 18th Century limekilns built on it, still standing today and owned by the National Trust. The harbour is unusual in the fact that it is the only west-facing one on the east coast. The harbour is still used today by the fishermen in the Northumbrian cobles, trying to make a living from the lobster, crab, trout and salmon that they fish for close to the beach.

Leaving the harbour, we walk along the beach to the car park, where Beadnell comes alive in the summer months with its new venture into watersports activities. Through the busy caravan site, we walk around the back of Beadnell past the hotels and B&Bs, to the main road. From here we pass the vicarage and out across the fields to Annstead Farm, a popular caravan and campsite with a bunkhouse.

We return to Beadnell along the beach, where the village chippy awaits those with a seaside appetite.
