Whilst in Newcastle over the October half term we explored part of the Northumberland Coastline up to Whitley Bay. This coastline is as beautiful as the North Coast of Northern Ireland. We spent a day exploring around Marsden Rock and Souter Lighthouse before heading towards Sunderland. Marsden Rock is a rock formation that is owned by the National Trust. In 1996 tidal erosion caused the arch to collapse, forever changing the face of the rock. The rock is made of Magnesian Limestone and stands 100-foot tall approximately 100 yards off the main cliff face. It is home to thousands of pairs of Black-legged Kittiwakes, Fulmars, Gulls and Cormorants.
My boys loved playing on the beach and rocks while the tide came in. Here are a few other photos from that day:
