Cresswell to Warkworth – 8 December 2018

Do you know that Druridge Bay is 7 miles (11 km) long and stretches from Cresswell in the south to Amble in the north and we are going to be walking along the length of it.

We may not have been able to this during the Second World War because it was out of bounds to the public as it was thought of as a possible landing place for a German invasion. There were pillboxes and anti-tank blocks as well as minefields and an anti-tank ditch.

Fortunately, the minefields are gone but there is still evidence of the pillboxes and anti-tank blocks which are slowly sinking into the sand or sometimes being uncovered by wind and tide.

All the walks follow each other along the coast with the 13.5-mile route starting close to Ellington and then all the other routes starting further along the coast with the 7.5-mile route starting from Druridge Country Park.

If you would like to walk along the best bit of coastline in the whole of Northumberland you can get in touch with us via our Contact Page. You also find the walk descriptions here and the GPS routes here.
