Caption for Alnmouth, General View c1955

Six miles south of Craster, the seaside resort of Alnmouth was once the port for Alnwick. From the 12th century until Christmas Day 1806, large amounts of grain were shipped out of Alnmouth, and timber, slate, and later guano, were imported through it. Then disaster struck. A storm changed the course of the Aln, which in turn led to the silting up of the harbour. Evidence to the power of the storm can still be seen to the south of the village. There, standing alone amid the fields, is a guano shed; the Aln once flowed past it.

College Days

We built our 60ft catamaran at the farm at the bottom of this lane. I met my husband in the Schooner Hotel on the 13th November 1970. I was attending Alnwick College and we lived in Nether Grange as opposed to the castle. Wonderful village, friendly people.
