Week #41 Alnwyck and Eyemouth

Thos week we drove down to Alnwyck, a pretty market town in Northumberland.
It was a walk of many parts:
Firstly, a visit to Barter Books, the largest 2nd hand bookshop in the UK,
housed in the old Alnwyck railway station-a bookshop of great character.

Not my best shots; note to self- check that the auto focus is switched on!

Then a walk through the town. It was market day.
It's a very small market, but added a splash of colour to an otherwise grey day.

As did a walk into the woods around the castle:
On the way home we drove into Eyemouth.
The harbour is very much a working harbour, full of the paraphenalia of fishing fleets.
There is a maritime museum on the dock, with an old chinese junk.
