On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Warkworth to Cresswell

Four things stand out at Warkworth above all others, the Castle, the Norman bridge, the Church and the Hermitage. Try and visit one of these while you are visiting! The Hermitage is especially lovely and located half a mile upstream of the castle on the north bank of the river. It can be reached by following a path along the south bank until you reach a boat landing, where a small boat can be hired to cross to the hermitage. Hidden by trees and carved into the rock the hermitage includes a chapel, confessional and dormitory. The walks then heads towards Amble which is Northumberland's most important fishing centre north of the Tyne, and leisure sailing has also become important, the town has many good shops, pubs and ideal fast food and restaurants. The walk then takes in the seven-mile sweep of magnificent golden sands at Druridge Bay which is considered by many to be the finest bay on the Northumberland Coast. You will finish at Cresswel, an old village, with a pele tower dating to the 14th century, with the tower scenically set in a belt of trees
