Heritage trail in Northumberland coastal village made passable again thanks to Coast Care volunteers
Volunteers have helped to open up parts of Seahouses Heritage Trail for walkers once more.
The trail had been left unmanaged over the years and had become badly overgrown in places.
However, it is now in much better shape thanks to the efforts of the Coast Care environmental group and its team of volunteers.
They have cut back branches and overgrowth to establish a woodland walk through the Quarry Wood, creating habitat piles using material generated and edging the track with felled logs.
The last session before the festive break saw the volunteers coppicing within the woodland to improve access.
Current work is focused on the southern loop, which explores North Sunderland and follows an ancient byway before leading across fields and the golf course back into Seahouses.
There is also a northern loop, while there are are also trails of the harbour and along the old railway line.
