The Blyth battery is situated at the south end of town as you approach from Seaton Sluice, and in addition to the battery itself, you will find the multi-coloured beach huts and a lovely stretch of beach. It's lovely place for a stroll.

Bracing walk along blyth beach takes in a few sights like the battery with outlets like the boathouse, fish n chips etc. Colourful beach huts. Big stretch for dog walking. Not far from landlocked lighthouse

Dropped in on way home from Jess Glynne concert following a fantastic stay in Warkworth. Interesting collection and history, ran by local volunteers all ex service personnel each with a tale to tell. Lots to see and a small cafe on site.

As a war baby ( actually born 3/9/39 ) the construction of life as it was in those dark days is both impressive and emotional. Quite how the volunteers have assembled and then displayed the items is marvellous to behold. Better still is the way...More

Lovely clean beach and surrounding are the battery is open at weekends and for local events it is staffed by local volunteers and if you're interested in history worth a visit.
