Our route takes us from the busy seaside town of Seahouses along the trackbed of the disused North Sunderland Railway to the village of North Sunderland. From here we walk through the village, then down a track known as Black Lonnen, to pass one of the earliest limestone quarries used in the 18th Century, now covered by woodland. Reaching the golf course, we see another of the quarries, now ponds that are a haven for wildlife and a feature of the golf which we cross to join the clifftop path.

Reaching Seahouses, we see an old powder-house out on the rocks, used for storing gunpowder during the building of the outer harbour in the 1880s; and in the distance Bamburgh Castle and The Farne Islands can be seen. All along the route, information boards tell of the heritage of the area and from the harbour, boat trips take visitors to the islands, or continue into the town where the fish and chips and seaside resort shops dominate.
