Forays for 2017

April 22nd Rising Sun Dom Colback

This foray is just off the A19 north of Wallsend.  The easiest access is via the A19.  Travelling north, leave A19 at exit marked Holystone – Whitley Bay, Gosforth A191 – at roundabout take first exit for Gosforth… (There is also a brown sign for the country park.)  When on the A191 at the SECOND roundabout take the first exit.  On the left after a short distance there is a signed entrance for the Rising Sun (approx. 100 yards).  After a few hundred yards parking is on the left.  If travelling south on A19, use same junction but at the roundabout take forth exit, then as above.  For those coming via Newcastle/Tyne Bridge (A167(M)).  After the bridge get into the right hand lane and take the first exit on the right for A1058 Tynemouth and East.  Stay on A1058 and leave at junction marked A19, Tyne Tunnel, Morpeth, Silverlink…  Get into the left hand lane and join A19 North, then as above.
