Walk from Bamburgh to Budle Bay

  North East Index

 Scenes of North-East England - Northumbria - Northumberland

 

 

There are lots of great coastal walks on the coast in the Bamburgh.

This walk begins below the rock edifice on which Bamburgh Castle stands.

I love the marram grass on the coast holding the sand dunes together.

 

More of the Whin Sill dolerite exposed by coastal erosion.

The ruined remains of a pier from which boats were loaded with dolerite from a nearby disused quarry.

 

 

Looking seawards from the estuary of Budle Bay

 

Budle Bay is a great bird watching location, waders and a white egret.

 

 

Budle Bay is part of the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve.

 

An old World War II pill box, observation post, gun emplacement, not sure what it was, but was definitely to protect the coast from a seaborne attack!

 

... and back to Bamburgh!
