More than 30 vintage motorbikes are taking to the roads on Sunday for the annual Bamburgh Run.

The newest bike was built in 1947 and the oldest, a Birmingham-built Kynoch, dates from 1912.

The riders will pass through Bamburgh at 11am and Chathill at about 11.10am, arriving at Eglingham for a tea stop at about 11.45am. The run continues via Denwick to Boulmer for lunch. It then returns to Bamburgh via Howick and Embleton.

One of the riders, Bob Strode, is visiting from Washington State, USA. He is riding a 1947 Velocette KSS model.
