Northumberland and beyond - part three: Bamburgh

After spending a couple of hours on Lindisfarne I made a short hop south to the village of Bamburgh. By far Bamburgh's most outstanding feature is its enormous castle. Perched on a massive outcrop of rock on the edge of the North Sea it is a really imposing thing. Visible from miles away and dominating the landscape. I didn't go into the castle, although you can, but instead settled for taking photos of it from the wonderful expanse of sandy beach below its walls.

This is where I can show just how windy it still was. The dry sandy surface of the beach was blowing around, so much so that from a distance you could only really see people from the knees up.

The shifting sands of Bamburgh beach, with the Farne Islands in the distance.

Showing just how much sand there was blowing around, you can't see below the knees of the people in the distance.
