Fenwick to Berwick upon Tweed 20 kilometres / 12 miles
From Fenwick cross the busy A1(T) again and take the minor road through Fenwick Granary and continue until you reach the cattle grid. Turn left along a green lane. The track shirts around an old quarry before meeting a second minor road. Turn right along the road and then left along another track. The track goes over the East Coast railway line and a path continues over fields and the Beal Cast water course to meet the sea at The Swab.
Turn left and the path goes between the Second World War defences up to the causeway over to Lindisfarne. At high tides this may not be as easy.
Get close to the tops of the defences and see how nature is gradually taking over.
