Photographer's Note

Beadnell Harbour has the distinction of being the only harbour on the east coast of England to face west. It was built in the 18th century to serve the lime kilns that can be seen in the background, but is now used by a small number of fishing boats and pleasure craft.
One of the most popular holiday areas on the north east coast, present-day Beadnell consists of three villages in one, Beadnell Harbour, the old Beadnell Village and Beadnell Haven. The harbour is of considerable age and was probably constructed in the eighteenth century, as were the limekilns, which are now under the protection of the National Trust. The village has probably been inhabited for several thousand years, and Bronze-Age burial chambers have been discovered along the shore.

Just east of the harbour, at Ebb's Neuk Point, lie the ruins of a 13th century chapel. Legend has it that Oswald, King of Northumbria, built the original for his sister, St Ebba, in the 7th century.

Originating in the 16th century, Beadnell Tower is a three storey stone pele tower, with 18th century alterations.

Located in the village centre, the site is now The Craster Arms public house which has an excellently kept pint of ale.
This day was very cold and the wind straight off the sea,I snapped this and ran for cover to the aforesaid pub.
