Alnmouth and Church Hill
Alnmouth and Church Hill
Alnmouth was once an important trading port, mainly involved in the export of grain and in smuggling.
The port declined after the river changed course during a violent storm in 1806, taking its current course rather than flowing behind Church Hill on the left.
This incident also resulted in the original church on Church Hill being destroyed.
