Alnmouth, Northumberland. From the Warkworth road, there is a striking view of this small red-roofed town piled beside the estuary where the Am flows into the North Sea. Once an important grain-shipping port (and smugglers' haven, reputedly) it is now a holiday resort with yachting, good sands both North and South, and one of the oldest golf courses in England. A pleasant walk on the sands leads 3 miles South to Warkworth past a pile of rocks called Birling Carrs. Alnmouth was the port for Alnwick in the late 12th century, and in the early 19th century it was still exporting considerable amounts of corn and importing Norway timber. Ships were built here. Some of the granaries were later converted to houses. In a terrible storm on Christmas Day, 1806, the crashing seas broke through the north-east bank of the river and the Am changed course, pouring into the sea through the new opening on the north side of Church Hill. The harbour was left on the south side where it gradually silted up. Church Hill is the site of an Anglo-Saxon church and the ruins of the later Norman church were finally destroyed by the 1806 gale. Alnmouth is the probable site of the great synod of 684 in which Cuthbert was chosen Bishop of Lindisfarne. The little town witnessed several naval encounters in the l8th-century war with France and in 1779 it was itself bombarded. The American John Paul Jones, who had been cruising along the coast, fired a cannon at the old church. He missed, and the cannon-ball, weighing 68 lb, hit the ground, bounced three times and crashed into the end of a farm-house. Beacon Hill North of the town is an Ancient British camp.
