Meggie's Burn And Blyth Coast Walk
A wander to Meggie's Burn in Blyth and then back along the coast and via the promenade.
This is a nice flat walk from the Blyth sea front along to Meggie's Burn, a small fishing pond just inland.
From the car park we head over the road and head on to the path signposted Gloucester lodge playing fields. From here is a short 1.5km meander to the pond.
Meggie's Burn is actually a reservoir and was probably made to supply fresh water to the collieries that used to be dotted around this area. There are lots of little jetties dotted around the perimeter for anglers to drop their tackle.
We do a little circuit of the reservoir which took less than 5 mins, stopping to take some shots of the calm waters from different angles.
Leaving Meggie's Burn behind we continued on west and then headed south on the permissive path towards Lysdon Farm. I always feel like I am encroaching when heading through farms, so we don't dawdle and soon we are on the path out in the fields.
Then it's just a straight line all the way back to the coast. Crossing over the road we head onto the Eve Black Coastal Walkway and head past the Cycling Totem Poles.
Just a bit further along are the northern and southern searchlight emplacements, which are World War 1 searchlights for tracking high altitude aircraft.
Looping around the bandstand we head on the path near the road to make our way back to the car park.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.More Walks from Simon
