Hedley Farm, Tanfield.

Directions

Up the A167 until just north of Chester-le-Street.

Head west on the A693 towards and past Beamish, then turn north onto the A6076 in the direction of Sunniside and Gateshead.

The race venue is a couple of miles along here on the right: Hedley West Farm. Although the farm is located just off Hedley Lane, do not turn off to the right along the lane - carry on a bit further north, and the entrance to the venue is off the main road, to the right, just before the large black and white 'Tanfield Railway' sign on the left that's near a bus stop.

The venue

The race headquarters will be situated off the A6076 Stanley road (Hedley West Farm, NE16 5EQ) with parking facilities immediately opposite Tanfield Railway.

The parking is at the farm, in a field adjacent to the course.

The course

Nice windy mildly-undulating course - partly amongst trees, partly over open fields. Plus: the welcome return of a water jump, even if it's only a shallow one ...
