Wild Recreation Guide Published

The Berwickshire, Northumberland and North Tyneside coast is an increasingly popular location for outdoor recreation of all kinds. Access to the coast brings a wealth of health and wellbeing benefits but pressures from recreation can also impact on the important wildlife found there.

We have produced the Wild Recreation Guide to provide headline messages which will allow visitors to safely and responsibly enjoy outdoor recreation in the area while avoiding impacts on the internationally important wildlife found here. We hope that you ENJOY this wonderful coastline, RESPECT other people, and help PROTECT the wildlife that makes the area so special.

The Guide can be accessed at 


Many thanks to the Wash and North Norfolk Marine Partnership for allowing us to adapt the concept and their original Wild Recreation Guide and to Northumberian Water for support with the costs of document design.
