Many thanks to the Coquet Valley Gas for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The River Coquet runs through the county of Northumberland, England, discharging into the North Sea on the east coast of England at Amble. The small town of Rothbury is beautifully situated beneath the rugged Simonside Hills. The river dashes through a narrow gully called the Thrum, and then passes Brinkburn Priory, of which the fine Transitional Norman church was restored to use in 1858, while there are fragments of the monastic buildings. This was an Augustinian foundation of the time of Henry I. Paperhaugh Bridge was built by the Duke of Northumberland and then adopted by the County in 1888. The River has Brown Trout with the best fish to date coming to the bank after an epic struggle at a whopping 6lb. A seasonal runs of Salmon & Sea Trout with top weights of 22lb and 14lb respectively.
