Thropton Trip

Started off from Ashington at 09:15 on board the bus to Morpeth armed with a flask of coffee, packed lunch and my Lumix LX3.

After a 25 minute trip, had a twenty minute wait before the arrival of the Thropton bus. I must say this recently built treminal is quite cosy and warm. There were no draughts as all the entrances to the buses are by automatic doos, sealig in the heat .... lovely. Makes a change from some of the cold and windy holes I've been in.

Once on board the Thropton bus I made myself comfortable and relaxed, reading a free copy of the Metro daily newspaper supplied to the bus company.

The trip of some 17 miles took forty minutes passing through only two villages, Longhorsely and Longframlington before hitting Rothbury where a couple of passengers alighted, then it was off to Thropton, five minutes along the road arriving at 11:45. The village has two pubs and what seemed like a million 4 X 4s parked all over the place. Robson Green is rumoured to have a property here. There are anti-fouling signs and poop bins from one end of the village to the other. It was the River Coquet and the footbridge that spans it I came to see.
After a short walk to the footbrige it was out with the flask and packed lunch ( two sausage rolls and a Mexican Chicken sandwich)........ which went down a treat.
