We start at Old Hartley and walk along the cliff top to Collywell Bay. This bay has a small beach and we take every chance to walk on sand, so we will take a drop down onto the beach.
When we walk back up from the beach, we will be in Seaton Sluice. We get to take a close look at the sluice itself and Rocky Island, the island created when the sluice was created.
This beautiful beach is about 2 miles long and will take us all the way to Blyth. We will take a break for lunch near Blyth Battery. There area also some toilets here.
When we get back to Seaton Sluice we will take a path into Holywell Dene, where we follow the Seaton Burn back to Old Hartley.
Hope to see you there,
