The Blyth battery is situated at the south end of town as you approach from Seaton Sluice, and in addition to the battery itself, you will find the multi-coloured beach huts and a lovely stretch of beach. It's lovely place for a stroll.

Bracing walk along blyth beach takes in a few sights like the battery with outlets like the boathouse, fish n chips etc. Colourful beach huts. Big stretch for dog walking. Not far from landlocked lighthouse
