Time of year
We parked at the top of the hill and walked down and saw this little hut, no bigger than a garden shed but full of the Towns nautical history.
No longer a foot ferry to cross the river Aln, so a long detour to Warkworth and then a 2½ mile walk back along the sands to get to the opposite bank - but well worth the walk. A brief stop, first, for interest in the old ferryman's hut to look at photos of old Alnmouth.
There was nothing to say it was a museum but gazing thru the windows showed plenty to see . next time we will hopefully be there when it is open.
It's fantastic that somebody has taken the time and trouble to preserve this small slice of history. The hut is dedicated to the ferryman who spent his life ferrying people across the river. An interesting slice of history.
This is a local attraction and full marks for the people that maintain it. VERY small and just for historians I think but amazing that it is open at all....leave your car at the Hipsburn school car park and walk down the cycle path to the bridge, then go down Lover's Walk. If…
