Sounds of the countryside
Some of the sounds you can enjoy in spring in north Northumberland. Featuring three exclusive stereo audio recordings.
Each lasts 60-90 seconds. They were recorded on Wednesday 6 May 2009 between the hours of 6am and 8am. The photographs were taken at each location at the same time.
First is the sound of a burn, second a point on a public footpath between there and Juniper Hill (listen out for the owl at the beginning). Finally a small oak wood on the Hill itself. If you would like to do this walk, see footpath number one.
Take a trip to the Farne Islands
The high ground to the north of Bamburgh gives a great view of Bamburgh castle, the village and Farne Islands. Google asked the public which UK landmarks should be added to its Street View service and Bamburgh castle was the winner. See our Street View sightseeing tour on this page.
Linking and social networks
Some curiosites can be seen from the road -- like the "old ducket" at Spindlestone (seen above) which was converted into holiday accommodation recently.
