Stretching south from Newbiggin Point in an arc to Spital Carrs and Spital Point, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea’s beach resonates in different ways.  For example, traditional Northumberland cobles still sit on the hard standing as a testament to centuries of commercial fishing and visitors are also drawn to the modern Newbiggin Maritime Centre. It’s also home to artist Sean Henry offshore sculpture “Couple”, which foreshadowed Anthony Gormley’s works on Crosby beach in the North West.  With plenty of facilities in the town, this is a stimulating place to visit.  Highly recommended.
