• The beaches are left behind!

    In this week when beaches are celebrated as part of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, they seem to be at a premium on the next stretch of St. Oswald's Way, which once again dips inland before returning to the coast for the crossing to Lindisfarne.

    Leaving picturesque Bamburgh, the coast is followed north to Budle Bay before turning inland and following a series of field margins to the village of Belford. From here the route runs up onto ridges that are parallel with the coastline, into the woods at Kyloe and finally drop down to the A1 in anticipation of a tidal crossing to Holy Island.

    Signs of Summer abound as hedgerows fill, newly fledged birds test their skills and the air is filled with the scent of flowering plants. A day of joy that recharges the batteriesand fills the spirits to the brim
