I hope Newbiggin won't be offended if I say how cold and
deserted it was on that August day. We walked along the front at 6 o'clock in the evening and were virtually the only people there. Nowhere to take a family to eat, but the sea view was breathtaking and the artwork in the town fascinating. It looks as though a lot of money has been spent in the town, much of it I read as part of the flood defences, but the English weather gives out doors art a rather dour aspect.

There is more to see, and I'm sure my visit was coloured (not quite the right phrase) by the bitingly cold weather.
I certainly wish there was more public art out there in the world, and Newbiggin is certainly taking a step in the right direction.
