Wandering down the River Wansbeck.

On 7th June I went for a wander down the River Wansbeck, for once I went right, to see how near to the sea I could get...

Approaching the River Wansbeck.
 Heading down towards the railway bridge 
 Only a couple of miles to the sea!

 That's one BIG bridge!
 A sandbank, where a lot of the swans etc live.

The path seems to follow the riverbank.  
Another sandbank looms. 
As far as the path goes before heading uphill to West Sleekburn. No see the Sea 
 Heading back towards the railway bridge.
The tide in the river is changing, coming upstream now. 
 Looking back at the last sandbank. 
More birds resting on the big sandbank. 
 Ah, the rail bridge again!

Back towards the road bridge. 

 ..and on down the riverbank.
Looking back at the busy road bridge. 
 Calm river.
The path leads up from the riverbank. 
The start of the Bluebell banks, these were late this year due to the long Winter. 

 And up into the light, and home!
 A nice walk in the early Summer sunshine!
