Destruction of our heritage
Holy Island '“ home of St Cuthbert, 330 species of birds, 3,000 seals and 650,000 visitors a year.
You would think such a jewel in Northumberland’s crown would be cherished by the county council, but instead it appears to be selling off parts of the island to help pay for its new £80million luxury headquarters in Ashington.
The Union Chain Bridge, the oldest surviving iron chain suspension bridge still in use in Europe, is in need of repair, and the beautiful Druridge Bay could be ripped apart by an opencast mine.
This destruction of our county’s heritage and communities for short-term gain would do even the Vikings proud.
