Northumberland-The Coastal Pubs and Inns
Many of Northumberland’s coastal pubs and inns arise from the ancient industries of the coast: fishing, grain, and of course smuggling. They all have fascinating stories to tell. From the northern banks of the river Tyne to the border with Scotland beyond the walls of Berwick the Northumbrian coastline is littered with pubs and inns, taverns and hostelries.
The author explores their histories, their landscapes and how they came to be what they are today. Places were born of the ancient industries of the coast – fishing, exporting coal and grain, and of course smuggling – and they all have their own stories to tell. The book is packed with photographs, information and fascinating facts.
The author is a Tyneside Northumbrian with a passion for the county, its history, its landscape, its people and of course its pubs. But there is no place for ratings or reviews here. What better way to spend a little time than following the author’s pub crawl through the hostelries of the Northumberland coast?
30 pubs, over 100 photographs, and more pints than you could shake a stick at.
