THE ART & HISTORY OF NORTHUMBRIA

On August 16, forty members of Stradfas escaped from 18 months of lockdown and set out on a wonderful 5 day tour of Northumbria. Our varied itinerary included walking tours, visits to art galleries, museums, Alnwick Castle , Bamburgh, the magnificent  Durham cathedral and a lovely sunny day on the magical island of Lindisfarne.

We were impressed by the wide open spaces and  the friendliness of the people wherever we went. But the icing on the cake was our outstanding guide. She educated and entertained us; we learned so much about the history of the region and its culture; the talent of its  people, the enormous influence of coal in the past and the exciting plans for the future.

We had a most interesting and enjoyable holiday; so welcome and refreshing after the months of Covid restrictions.
