Discover the hidden Northumberland in your motorhome

8e27ee9d-a106-422c-bc9e-c2df26904f07

Northumberland is becoming a popular destination for holidays, with its wide-open beaches, castles and historic towns.

Alnwick-based publisher, Wanney Books, is developing a range of booklets that cover aspects of Northumberland that have been a little neglected in the past. Priced at under £5, the A5-sized booklets aim to give the visitor a concise account of a particular aspect of Northumberland’s history, landscape and culture. Two publications that might be of interest to anyone thinking of holidaying in the county are Relics of War and The Great North Road.

Relics of War is a guide to the county’s 20th century military remains. Visitors are often puzzled by the numbers of pillboxes and other concrete constructions that are still to be seen across the countryside and on the beaches. This book explains what they all were for.

The Great North Road takes the reader on a journey along the older parts of the road, from Newcastle to Berwick, avoiding the dual carriageway and pointing out the places of interest along the way.

These books, and others, are available from Wanney Books’ website wildsofwanney.co.uk with free P&P in the UK.
