Photographer's Note

Moving North up the Northumberland coast from Warkworth, the winding road of the coastal route offers spectacular views of the next stop along the coastal journey, Alnmouth. The village is almost picture postcard perfect with its colourful cottages, at it's best on a sunny day( which this was most definitely not)) when the tide is out revealing the vast expanses of golden sand. Located approximately 5 miles East of Alnwick, Alnmouth was founded in 1150 and today remains a beautiful and interesting village that is well worth exploring. There is a lovely variety of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, gift shops and a golf course for visitors to enjoy

Alnmouth Golf Club - Established 1869 the fourth oldest golf club in England.

In August, 1869 Captain Arthur Walker, on behalf of a number of others, issued a notice to probable members about the forming of a golf club in Alnmouth. It is believed that the course in Alnmouth village was designed and created by Mungo Park, a youngish man at the time, who was to become a famous golf professional and the Club's first professional.

Taken from the road leading to Warkworth Castle and Amble.
