Along the East Coast

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…
