Alnmouth, Northumberland

Set on the estuary of the River Aln as it enters the waters of the North Sea, Alnmouth is a picturesque seaside village which has itís roots dating back to 1150.

The village once thrived as a grain port and was a haunt of smugglers. However this status an an important trading port was ended in 1806 after a violent storm changed the course of the river and destroyed the church. A commemorative cross marks the spot where the church stood on top of a large sand dune.
