Needles Eye, near Berwick-upon-Tweed
Impressive craggy stretch of coastline extending northwards from Berwick. At Needles Eye there is a natural arch. An excavation in 2005 identified a prehistoric enclosure from cropmarks seen on aerial photographs in the fields above the Needles Eye cliffs. The enclosure, bisected by the East Coast mainline railway, forms one of a number of possible prehistoric enclosures in the wider Berwick area. The excavation revealed significant evidence of Iron Age activity including one of the largest collections of Iron Age tradition pottery recovered to date from a site in Northumberland.
