Amble, The Beach c.1965

More about this scene


Caption for Amble, the Beach c1965: Amble was little more than a hamlet until the construction of Warkworth Harbour in the late 1830s. Amble became a centre for coal exports, and was served by a branch line of the North Eastern Railway. Today it is hard to imagine that in 1913 there were 120 coalmines in Northumberland alone, and 67 when the NCB was formed in 1947. Coal exports ceased in 1969, the same year that the railway line was closed.
