About Druridge Bay

National Trust LinkThe National Trust own several areas of the north-east coast in Northumberland and County Durham. These include Souter Lighthouse, Druridge Bay, and Newton Links (Long Nanny). Druridge Bay is particularly good for sea birds and the dunes are fantastic for butterflies and moths. Click on the Oak Leaf to see the National Trust's website for the north-east coast.
