Bord Waalk trail – a handy map

Posted on 20th January 2023 | in Bord Waalk , Community , Heritage & Tourism , Leisure

Many people are enjoying the Bord Waalk sculptures and have asked for more information on them. The app will be ready very soon, and there will be leaflets available once the sculptures are all finished. But in the meantime, here’s a basic map of the Bord Walk sculptures.

There will soon be an app for iOS and Android devices which will include info on all the sculptures and artists, plus poetry, birdsong and soundscapes.

There is no definitive start or finish to the trail, but this map begins at the Turner St car park and heads north to the Braid. It then returns to the town centre, before heading east and south along the Northumberland Coast Path towards Hauxley.

You can of course visit the bords in any order you choose. Whichever way, we hope you enjoy your waalk.
