Bamburgh is one of the most beautiful, interesting and historic places in the whole of the United Kingdom.

Its history goes back to the sixth century, and on this walk Mick takes you on a journey in time and space which is positively dazzling!

We explore the ancient history of this wonderful place, the key element of the city of Bamburgh in the development of British Christianity, the impact of the Vikings, the Normans, the Church, the time of the border reivers and the border wars, and the positively fascinating stories of the sixteenth century Forster family, and the way their fortunes led to Bamburgh being the home of the worlds first welfare state.

And Grace Darling. Of course!
