Newbiggin-by-the-Sea and the River Wansbeck
This walk visits Newbiggin-by-the-Sea and the River Wansbeck. It starts close to the Newbiggin Maritime Centre and then continues down the coast to the mouth of the River Wansbeck. From here we turn inland and follow the river upstream towards the Wansbeck Country Park.
We will return the same way as we went out, taking advantage of The Breakwater Cafe at the Newbiggin Maritime Centre.
