Dokie’s Egg

Dokie’s Egg is one of the most visible of the artworks, as it is situated by the road and the river Coquet, on the way from Amble to Warkworth.  Locally a dokie is a guillemot. This is a representation of a giant guillemots egg.  It also contains poetry about the local birds.

To Hauxley

We will take a route to Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre, where we will take a break, while watching the birds.
