About Newbiggin-by-the-sea

 Newbiggin-by-the-Sea is a small coastal town in south east Northumberland. The town is famous for its promenade and beach, which underwent a massive redevelopment in 2007, and for the impressive Couple sculpture.  Once an important port for shipping grain and a coal mining town, it is still a small fishing port where traditional cobles are still in use today. The town attracts visitors who enjoy the beach and promenade as well as nature lovers who come to watch the North Sea seabird passage during the autumn and spring. Dolphins are often sighted close offshore and even within the bay. It is also home to a links golf course that is open year-round.
