  • Description

    " Amble town is located on the Northumberland coast at the mouth of the river Coquet, sitting on a modest promontory dividing Druridge Bay to the south and Alnmouth Bay to the north.....Within a few miles are the villages and hamlets of Warkworth, Broomhill, Hadston, Red Row, Acklington, Togston and Hauxley. Two other villages with significant populations; Radcliffe and Chevington Drift, were demolished in the 1970s/80s to make way for opencast mining. Inhabitants of these villages were moved to Amble and Hadston. This area falls within the old parish boundaries of Warkworth and Chevington Chapelry...."
