Site Details

This site covers the area of Druridge Bay from Druridge Farm to Chibburn Mouth, about 1 mile. The southern section is owned by The National Trust. The Reserve to the immediate west is managed by Northumberland Wildlife Trust. The Reserve is largely the result of land reclamation following mining activities. The area provides quality birdwatching throughout the year; it is quietest in summer and its best in winter. Species are representative of the Druridge Bay area.

Additional Site Details


The area is accessed from the minor coastal road north from Cresswell or from Widderington (A1068). From this road the area is signposted - National Trust and Northumberland Wildlife Trust - on an awkward corner beside a small conifer plantation. A 1-mile stretch of road running north gives access to the various habitats and parking is not a problem.


Anyone can now use the hides (access was formerly restricted to NWT members).

Opening Times



3 hides on the Reserve. Significant sightings are usually posted at Cresswell Pond and Hauxley Reserves.

Key Areas / Routes

a. The 2 small pools to the south and associated wet fields and plantations; b. The deep main pool to the north; c. The dunes, bushes and areas where cattle are fed and shelter; d. The high dunes for seawatching.
