On the beach

While the press and government were expressing concerns over crowded beaches on the south coast we were strolling along miles of deserted beaches on the Durham coast.

If you look closely you can see a dog walker in the distance on the left side of this picture.

Admittedly we did need take our coats, but frankly it was a small price to pay and the rain held off while we made Geordie sand castles.


  1. Great photos. Love the Geordie sand castles. How long do you have to wait for the sand to solidify into those round shapes? Incredible.

  2. Alden - interesting piece of coast 40 years ago it was an industrial wasteland - it's massively improved and cleaned up since those bad days

    Blackhall Colliery Beach

    Blackhall beach made a notable appearance in the 1971 film Get Carter; in the climactic scenes the main character is involved in a chase across a coal-strewn beach.[2][3] The film shows the beach black with coal spoilings, dumped there by mine's conveyor system. Since the mine closed, £10 million has been spent removing the conveyor and its massive concrete tower and cleaning tons of coal waste from the beach, which is now pristine.[4]

  3. Yes, My kind of coast (except as a lee shore in storm) - wild, rugged and just shouting to be explored. I had a good look at a raft of Google photos. It's further north than I thought until I looked a the map.
    You photos of the area are very fresh and bright, not quite as misty and hazy as southern England.
