AUTHOR: Anthony Toole
A Boot Up The Northumberland Coast
A Boot Up The Northumberland Coast
  • Description
  • Related

The Northumberland coastline, from the mouth of the Tyne to Berwick upon Tweed, has its share of craggy cliffs and long, sandy beaches. Yet once one moves beyond the Tyneside conurbation in the south, it has the feel of a neglected beauty.

Much of the scenery of the Northumberland coast derives from its rich industrial heritage, as everywhere can be seen the quarries from which the coal and limestone were harvested. In most places these have been reclaimed by Nature, and are now thriving wildlife reserves.

Halsgroveís new-format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the area.

Anthony Toole lives in Newcastle upon Tyne, and spends much of his time walking in and writing about the hills of the north-east. He contributes walk descriptions regularly to BBC Countryfile Magazine and also contributed to the AA publication, 50 Walks in Durham and Northumberland. He writes outdoor features for The Northumbrian,The Countryman and North-east Life magazines. He is a prizewinning member of Outdoor Writersí and Photographers' Guild and Writers and Photographers Unlimited.

Imprint: PiXZ Books. ISBN 9780857100092, hardback, 110x155mm, 64 pages. Published April 2010.
