Newbiggin bay, working on the bay project, diggers, sand, crane

An exhibition of photographs taken on a single day

Between March and October 2007, the Northumbrian coastal village of Newbiggin by the Sea is undergoing a major project to bring the once famous beach and sea front back to and beyond its former glory.

The £10 million project will involve recharging the beach with 500,000 tonnes of new sand, building a new breakwater in the bay to ensure tidal currents do not remove the new sand, improving the promenade, including a new set of feature steps in the centre of the bay, new playground, raised viewing platforms allowing visitors to see over the existing concrete sea defences, and the UK’s first permanent offshore sculpture.

This web site will bring photographic and video information, as well as updates on the progress of all aspects of the project, with contributions from the people who live and work in the village. Our aim is to keep the visitors to this web sites and the village informed about this important project, and allow you to see the rebirth of one of Northumberland’s friendliest communities.
