Housed in the town’s original colliery, this fascinating museum recounts a proud mining history.
You’ll find this at the beautiful Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Country Park, once a colliery spoil heap.
Woodland, grassland and the lovely River Wansbeck make a great combination for country walks and picnics.
It’s a short drive to Morpeth, where you’ll find some 150 highland bagpipes in the wonderful old chantry.
