The year kicks off with a picture of the Percy Hunt outside Alnwick Castle for the traditional New Year’s Day meet.

Beautiful shots of the village of Harbottle, waves crashing over Amble Pier, springtime at Belsay Hall, blossom in Morpeth, mighty Cheviot, picturesque Ford and the golden sands of Beadnell Bay lead us through to autumn and winter, where we find Howick Hall, Norham Castle and the war memorial at Bothal.

The year rounds off with a stunning light display at the Alnwick Garden in December.

The calendar’s cover photo is lovely Bamburgh village in the spring, complete with yellow daffodils.
