Work is ongoing to improve the experience of visitors who use the lay-by at Budle Bay, near Bamburgh.

A number of improvements have been identified, including resurfacing and the construction of a viewing platform. The viewing platform will be cantilevered to the edge of the sea wall, where visitors can appreciate the views and the wildlife away from the busy road.

Interpretation will become part of this platform design and integrate seamlessly into the existing low-level kick rail which currently spans the entire length of the lay-by.

The work is taking place in what is a special year for the region’s coastline.

March marks the 60th anniversary of the designation of the north Northumberland coast as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
