Walk Details
Alnmouth, located on the north bank of the River Aln, is a small and picturesque village of some 650 inhabitants. It offers beautifully wide and sandy beaches and a variety of shops, cafes and pubs.

The walk takes you on a clear path, high above the seashore, before crossing Foxton golf course and heading inland to descend to the banks of the meandering River Aln.
