Allonby is a coastal village near the port town of Maryport. Thom travelled here pretty frequently as a child then lived in the village a while as a teenager. It was the home of his dad and stepmum. Not unlike St. Bees, Allonby is famed for its beach. Flat sands and gentle roads render a tranquil scene that extends far to the horizon.
You can watch the sun setting over the sea here year round, which makes for beautiful, dramatic evening views.
