I would highly recommend a visit to Northumberland – and I’ve only seen a tiny part of it! With a National Park, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a fascinating history, it is an ideal place for those who love walking, exploring and taking photos. Our trip took us to Wallington (a National Trust property near Morpeth), to Haggerston Castle (now a holiday park!) and Berwick-upon-Tweed.
These photos were taken at Berwick, on my last day and on a very short, half-hour visit before my train home. We only really had time to climb up to the castle, admire the view and leave again, so it’s now on ‘my must visit properly’ list.
A visitor to Wallington will find a house and gardens, lakes, woodland, parkland and farmland! We decided to visit the wildlife hide and were lucky enough to spot a red squirrel (not pictured – too quick for me and my camera!) and a number of birds.
