#projecttweed 16th January 2019
I spent most of yesterday exploring south of the river from Alnmouth - originally it was a scouting trip in advance of going back and taking "proper pictures", but the weather took a turn for the better so I came home with some decent shots and a 25k step count.
This trip was to expand my portfolio a bit following a request from a former colleague, but also as a bit of a test. We don't own a car - in fact I never even learned to drive - so as you can imagine getting around for Photography purposes is something that has caused some head scratching. Realising that it is straightforward to get to places like Alnmouth using public transport (even in time for sunrise this time of year!) and leg-power is reassuring.
This is the much-photographed St Cuthbert's Cross on Church Hill, across the estuary from Alnmouth - although apparently only since 1806 when the river changed path during a violent storm, cutting off the village from the hill.

Edlingham Castle Northumberland.
The ruins of Edlingham castle sit quietly in a narrow green valley that lies between the moors about five miles south west of Alnwick. Although the Castle and the village itself are of considerable antiquity they remain quiet because of their close proximity to Alnwick Castle, the more popular tourist destination.
During the eighth century King Ceowulph of Northumberland gave the village of Edlingham, then known as Eeadulfingham, (homestead of the sons of Eadwulph) to the monks of Lindisfarne. King Ceowulph was a man with deep religious interests, he abdicated around the year 738 and retired to Holy Island, where he lived until his death in 764-65.
Centuries later, around 1147, a manor house was built by the side of the Edingham burn, which runs from its source on Brimside moor to the river Aln. In later years the inhabitants of the house found it necessary to add fortification against the border raids.
Today the land around the Castle is mostly used for grazing although it was probably more heavily wooded in years gone by. The beautiful road to Edlingham from Alnwick is a Northumberland fabourite. The valley opens up towards the Simonside Hills affording spectacular views over the Northumberland countryside. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
