Cafe Newbiggin England
Small scal but great local infoweekenderinthesun, England
This, as its name suggests, tell of the Maritime history of the area- from the fishing people in the village to the dramatic sea rescues by the lifeboat. A real local gem and a great little cafÃ©- good for hot choc after a brisk walk on the beach, It's run by volunteers- they need your support!
After walking - on Boxing Day 2015 - on an extremely windy, cold day we were delighted to see the centre open and in particular the cafe. We received a warm welcome and a hot cup of coffee - much needed. Enjoyed looking around the centre and current art exhibition.
Worth a visit just for the cafeDerrick S,
Having a bit of spare time just popped in for a quick drink. But had a soup as well. What can I say but wow!! This place must be what everyone dreams about. With views to die for binoculars provided by cafe. Wish I could go again...it looks like it's well supported by the locals and what a assets...
A Very Nostalgic First VisitBob of B, Matlock, United Kingdom
A very good local museum that fills what has, in the past, been a serious gap in the town. Newbiggin has a fascinating history and deserves it's story to be told. As an exiled Newbiggin native, I found the displays very nostalgic and, particularly the audio-visual presentation, extremely emotive, but it does concentrate, quite rightly, on the fishing side of the town. I hope the small section on Newbiggin Colliery will be expanded.
Great centreWillStaffordshire, Staffordshire
This is a small centre in a lovely building. The exhibition is well displayed and gives a great insight into the local community and the brave volunteers. The cafe in the centre is nicely arranged and provides good food and drink.
