Longhoughton, Craster and Howick. (Northumberland) May 28 th
On the first dry and warm day of May, or so it seems, five of us are repeating a John Clarke walk that has not been done for a couple of years. It follows a route by the coast and in the country, starting at the village of Longhoughton in Northumberland. To get to the start either follow the Northumberland Coast route on the A189, the scenic route, or take the A1 to Alnwick and head east.
The five are; Harry, Dave, Brian, Margaret and me.
The walk is covered by OS Explorer 332 Alnwick and Amble.
Two views of the car park at Longhoughton. Not the prettiest but free. It is behind the village hall which used to be the local store and NAAFI for the nearby Boulmer RAF base.
Top the beach at Howdiemont Sands and bottom the mysterious spring is somewhere here at Sugar Sands.
