View from the Village

Now we're relocated to the edge of the Northumbrian moors my NY resolution will be to refocus (accidental pun ) on my photography. This is the kind of stuff I can rummage around in, its the view west from the village, Longframlington.

Lovely. Looks like you’ll have lots of very nice photo walks in that area.

Now that you have said that - what's the view in the opposite direction?

Good question. Now that the coal mining has ceased, not too shabby! The last shot was kinda southwestish. This is NW(ish):

The mound is the remains of an old pit.

East is all sky - looks over the coastal plain. We're up a height you see (windy and cold )

You can see the Alcan power plant bang in the middle.

Re: View from the Village

Having looked at the map, it now makes sense. We stayed at Warkworth one year, and also when we had a caravan, near Acklington. We carried on up to Coldstream, so I think would have gone up the A697. i also remember Nunnykirk, so we must have been through Longframlington. That was about 40 years ago!

Then there were Craster kippers, and we walked from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle. Bamburgh. Alnwick Castle. I must have some photographs somewhere... Happy days!
