Ceramic panel on wall of The Coble Inn. One of several ceramic panels on the Newbiggin Art Trail by Peter Seddon of the KEAP Creative group of local artists. It contains a series of symbolic images representing easily recognisable features of the town. A coble is prominent overlooked by a puffin which stands on the Point rocks with a lifebelt to hand. St. Bartholomew’s Church is also prominently represented with the Coble Inn itself and Bertorelli’s Cafe Riviera sign, which has, sadly, now disappeared. The lifeboat station is featured together with simple images representing the Couple, the horseshoe steps and the old breakwater. The whole panel is held together with subtle colours which reflect the outlook of the settlement.
