Local Landmark to be restored
The sea wall protecting the iconic Church Hill at Alnmouth which was damaged by a storm surge six years ago is to be repaired by Northumberland Estates.
Although Church Hill lies within a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the hill and wall fall outside the village conservation area and are not listed. The Estates has completed a survey of the wall and now plans to carry out repairs during the next 12 months, subject to receiving the necessary SSSI permits.
