The “Desolate” North East

3 Aug



For the last few days we’ve been pitched on a small field next to a pub – very convenient – near Berwick-upon-Tweed. While we’ve been here the area has been described as “desolate” and suitable for fracking which has caused a huge outcry, as you might imagine. These are some of our pictures, which I know don’t do the area justice.


Holy Island with a view of Lindisfarne Castle.


The small fishing village of Craster, the start of the walk to Dunstanburgh Castle.


The ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle (and me, of course – no ruin jokes, please!)


Just over the border, a view from St Abbs Head. In fact there’s a stunning view in all directions.

So, frack the lot?

      So near and yet so far, Joan. Heading south for Whitby tomorrow.

    Brilliant photographs of the lovely north-east (I live in County Durham) … and we’ve just acquired a caravan. Yay! 😀

      Thanks, Lesley, and welcome to the wonderful world of caravanning. Sure you’ll love it.
