Network Rail are repairing the railway bridge in Hexham and this means the road will be closed from 6th June until mid-July!!
Our guests staying at Leazes Head during this time (6th June – 18th July) will need to check their travel arrangements if starting or finishing their walk in Humshaugh. If arriving by train from Newcastle, it might be better to get off at Corbridge and arrange a taxi. If getting a train from Hexham to the airport or East or West train routes- check timetables and order a taxi to either Corbridge Railway Station or Haydon Bridge Railway Station.
The AD122 and 680 ‘Tynedale Links’ bus to Humshaugh will be diverted to the West Road junction into Hexham. Add more time to your journey to allow for these disruptions.
Also please remember that Hexham is still open and there are lots of lovely cafe’s, shops and things to see and do, not least Hexham Abbey!!
