Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I called this three in one because in the photograph we can see three features that are, or were, important to the livelihood of Beadnell.

Please take the time to click on Three in One where you will see the photograph much bigger and clearer.

In the foreground are the lobster pots, still used by the fishermen working from this small harbour. Behind the lobster pots is one of the huge lime kilns, built in 1789, once important for burning lime, to make quicklime, which was used as a fertilizer and in building mortar. And last, in the background, is the distinctive Beach Court, a very well known bed and breakfast establishment situated right next to the beach.
( Beach Court is a lovely b&b establishment, especially if you are fortunate enough to book the turret, which has vast views over the beach and out to sea.)

Beadnell has a long and rich history for such a small village nestled deep in the North-Northumbrian coastline.

Have a lovely day, Bev :-)
