LOW NEWTON BY THE SEA

Low Newton By The Sea, one of the best preserved 19th century fishing villages in Britain, offers a wonderful walk for wildlife watchers. The walk, starting from the village car park, offers the chance to observe migrant birds, waders and geese to name but a few, plus the opportunity to view grey seals hauling themselves onto rocks just offshore. The bird reseve includes hides for viewing the shore birds such as oystercatchers. Meanwhile, the beach includes a number of rock pools where creatures such as sea anenomes, limpets, crabs and starfish can be observed. The village itself, much of which is owned by the National Trust, has a square with whitewashed cottages and a historic pub arranged around a pretty village green. The pub, the Ship Inn, tucked into a corner of the square, is a cosy retreat for sampling the local fish delicacies, while the sandy beach is popular with windsurfers.
