Anyone involved in tourism is encouraged to attend Coast and Country days out, which are supported by Northumberland National Park and the Coast AONB.

The next one is titled the High Hills of Northumberland and is set for October 20. It starts at Kirknewton Village Hall at 10am with coffee followed by a 15-minute talk by professional walking guide Peter McEwan of Walk Northumbria.

Archaeologist Paul Fordsham will then present  ‘How and What do We Know About Yeavering?’

The group will then see Kirknewton’s old church, have lunch and take a short drive and stroll to and around the Saxon site of Gefrin, with Paul giving a talk.

Other activities during the day include seeing artist Peter Podmore’s gallery and a tour of newly renovated farm buildings at Westnewton.

Coast and Country is a series of one-day events organised by Lesley Silvera and supported by Northumberland National Park and the Coast AONB.

The days help individuals learn more about what is on offer for tourists or people from the region. Attendees can learn about the landscape, geography and history, and also network and meet others who work in the tourism industry, or rely on visitors as part of their business.
