Newton is no more than a collection of old fishermen's cottages and a pub. Indeed there is nothing else around for miles. We had heard good things about The Ship, although they did rather let us down. Here is the coastline. You can just see the cottages in the distance.
Near Newton is a famous iron church I also wanted to see. It was built in prefabricated form in late Victorian times to serve the tiny community. It is probably the smallest church in the county, but it is rather sweet. It sits inland a little way, under the coast guard station, but otherwise in the middle of open countryside.
We didn't visit Dunstanburgh Castle either. I'd become a bit castled out by now and anyway Dunstanburgh is now a ruin and looks better from a distance.
Here's a slightly closer view from the headland.
And you can just make it out here from the north across the bay.
