The River Coquet at Warkworth is the setting for this trip. The Coquet is one of Northumberlands most famous rivers and is dominated by Warkworth Castle, the former ancesterial seat of the Duke of Northumberland. Our trip takes us from Warkworth into the estuary where there are many wading birds, often fish jumping and even seals have been to put up an appearance.
Meeting at The Stanners, at Warkworth we enjoy a few hours looking at the sights the river has to offer. This section of the river is tidal which means the scenery is always changing, we regularly see fish leaping and birds dipping and feeding. There are herons wading and some magnificent views of Warkworth Castle and the hermits cave (as featured on Robsons Green's Tales from Northumberland) .
