Overview
More
Villages in time provide walks around three local villages, Beadnell, Bamburgh, and Seahouses. They focus on the fascinating history of the local area. The walks are gentle and suitable for most people, who can walk the 2 miles or so. Children go free, and there are activities for older children to undertake during the walks. The beautiful early medieval Church of St Aidan in Bamburgh is the latest area to be explored by Villages in Time, in walks undertaken in conjunction with the Parochial Council and Rector. Visits to the Church are only £5 per adult. Please contact Villages in Time to book your visit to this beautiful historic place.
