Beadnell’s picturesque harbour is the only west facing harbour on the east coast and is still used for small-scale fishing.
The harbour is backed by distinctive limekilns dating back to 1747 which are now owned by the National Trust. The kilns shelter the harbour and give an excellent backdrop – boats, ropes, lobster pots and limekilns provide endless possible compositions for photographers.
The harbour is the perfect starting place for a walk around Beadnell Bay. Two miles of sand stretch around the bay, past a colony of little tern and Arctic tern towards Low Newton-by-the-Sea.
The walk from Beadnell Harbour to Low Newton-by-the-Sea is approximately 4 miles around stunning bays and headlands. A kipper and a pint in the Ship Inn at Low Newton is the perfect reward once you reach the end of the walk.
