The Coast, the Country and the Cattle Trail

from Alnwick to Warkworth - the scenic route around the coastline

The Coast, the Country and the Cattle Trail CD Cover

Let us accompany you on a wonderful tour of Northumberland's fascinating heritage, with a distinct bias towards some of it's most spectacular castles.

It's a little known fact that Northumberland actually boasts more castles and fortified houses than any other English county. John Grundy introduces you to some of the county's most spectacular castles and uncovers some of the lesser known facts about these iconic buildings.

Did you know for example, that Kevin Costner rode through the archway at Hulne Park in Alnwick in the movie, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves despite the archway only dating back to the 1770s'. Well, it certainly looks the part! And just what is in that little shed next to the ancient church at Old Bewick...?
