Stag Rock, near Blackrocks Point
Stag Rock is located near the lighthouse at Blackrocks Point, about half mile north-east of Bamburgh. It's exact history is unknown, but the area has been known as 'Stag Rock' since at least the late 1800s. Local legend has it that a stag jumped into the sea here, rather than be killed by hunters pursuing it from Spindlestone. There is also folklore in which St Aidan (7th century) saved a stag from a pack of hounds by making it invisible. The paintwork of the stag is refreshed periodically, sometimes when the lighthouse is being painted.
