SHOPPERS can take time out to savour the splendour of the North East coast in a stunning new exhibition.

Photographs showing coastal scenes from across the region have been erected to entertain customers at Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade.

The impressive images, which are erected along the arcade’s Edwardian-style gallery, have been captured by local photographer Trevor Walker during his travels around the North East’s seaside beauty spots.

They follow hot on the heels of the centre displaying artwork by talented students at King Edward VI School last month. Designs by pupils were based on the theme of Northumberland summer scenes and were created using a variety of materials, including acrylic, oil paint and mixed media.

That in turn followed a stunning Suffragette-themed display to coincide with the Emily Inspires events in June that commemorated the 100th anniversary of the death of Northumberland campaigner Emily Wilding Davison, who lived in Longhorsley and is buried in Morpeth.

The latest photographs can be seen throughout August, and plans are already under way for a new display in September.

Centre Manager Medi Parry said: “Our gallery display is becoming something of a talking point and it’s lovely to have some of Trevor’s beautiful photographs of North East scenes on display for everyone to enjoy throughout August.

“They’re lovely pictures and its particularly nice to see the puffins feature in our pictures, which so many people visit the coast to see.”

She added: “We’d love to hear people’s ideas for themes for our ever-changing display.”

The arcade banners will now be changed every month to ensure a seasonal theme.
