24 February 2011 - Shaftoe Crags, Northumberland.

This afternoon we visited Shaftoe Crags near Bolam in Northumberland, a location we hadn't been to before. The crags are quite a popular rock climbing location, although not very high.

There are superb views from the top of the crags especially towards Wallington where the hall and grounds can be seen. The views stretch on to the Simonside Hills in the far distance.

The first three photos below are views from the top of the crags, followed by two views from the bottom looking up near the gap and path through the crags.

16 February 2011 - Alnmouth, Northumberland.

This afternoon we visited Alnmouth on the Northumberland coast for a walk along the beach and the River Aln.

The photos below are all views of the River Aln as the tide went out, leaving many of the small boats that are moored there high and dry.

01 February 2011 - Amble and Ladyburn Lake, Northumberland.

Today we made a late afternoon visit to Amble and then Ladyburn Lake to take some photos for our Northumberland website.

The first photo below is a view of the Little Shore beach at Amble, followed by a view from the promenade, where a family of swans were looking for a feed. The third photo is a view from the pier where the sea was very flat and calm, unlike our last visit.

The last two photos are views of Ladyburn Lake, a few miles south of Amble, shortly before and during sunset.
