Have your say

The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership is once more offering the chance to walk the Northumberland Coast Path this summer with the path originator, Iain Robson.

Each Wednesday between July 16 and Augsut 20 Iain will lead a walk along a section of the path in the company of a coastal expert, maybe a botanist, geologist, ranger or birdwatcher. You can choose to do one section or them all, it’s up to you.

The start time for each section coincides with the arrival of a bus with the return to the starting point by bus.

Details of each of the stages can be found below, the walks are all free, but you will need your bus fare. Plan your journey at www.travelinenortheast.info
