Holy Places Visited

  • St. John the Baptist Church, Alnmouth
  • The Friary of St. Francis, Alnmouth

Distance Travelled

Approximately 13 km (8 miles)


Overcast and drizzle after sunset. After attending Holy Communion at the Friary of St. Francis, I followed St. Oswald’s Way out of Alnwick then followed coastal tracks and bridleways until the northern edge of Warkworth Golf Club. Then walked barefoot along the beach to the harbour, then westwards on the path alongside River Coquet to Warkworth Beach Car Park, then back on St. Oswald’s Way to Warkworth. After the bridge, followed the public footpath to the castle then walked along the pavement, following the roads towards Amble. On the way joined the coastal footpath into Amble.

Thanks to Claire, Kirsten and Max for joining for small parts of the day’s journey.
