It was a delayed start as breakfast was in a cafe opposite our hotel and the chef turned up late.
It was a bright day with a cool breeze as we walked along the top of the small cliffs above the beach. A mile or so from Seahouses we were able to get down onto the beach but had to come up into the village to get around the harbour. Every time we visit Seahouses it’s a building site and this time was no different. Cranes and builders fencing everywhere around the harbour. Not a pretty sight.
Once out of Seahouses we dropped down to the sandy beach as soon as we could and followed this to beyond Bamburgh Castle. We came up over the sand dunes, walked around the castle to the main street and went in to the Lord Crewe Hotel for some refreshments. I had a pint of Holy Cow.
From here we headed inland up and down rolling countryside to Belford.
We are staying in the Blue Bell Hotel, the only hotel in the centre of Belford. The room is okay but it needs refurbishing and it’s not the cleanest place I’ve stayed.
I took 3 photos with my Mamiya 7 camera, making a total of 30 negatives after 4 days, that’s 3 rolls of Ilford 4oo Delta 120 film.
