Druridge Bay is a long coastal bay in Northumberland, extending from Amble (North) to Cresswell (South), seven miles of sand shore. It was thought of as a possible landing place for the Germans in WW2, defences are still there. Fishing boats work out of Amble. The harbour was extended in the 1830s.
Cresswell Tower at the other end was built in the 14th c.
