As the river Coquet approaches the sea it flows through the small village of Warkworth with its Castle. Approximately a couple of miles from Amble it is a rather special village.The Castle is naturally with the Percy's at Alnwick. It is managed by English Heritage and remains a very popular destination.

Nearby is "The Hermitage". Take the path down to the river and you will soon see the hermitage which in reality a small chapel and sleeping room carved into a sandstone boulder. The inscription carved into the rock says "tears have been my meat day and night".
