The skiing facilities of the club are situated on the edge of the village of Allenheads, an ancient lead mining centre in the North Pennines. Access to the village is via the B6295 road from Allendale Town and Hexham – an excellent road which is kept clear of snow in all but the most severe of weather. See the map below.
Our Postcode is NE47 9HW.
The village can also be reached from Weardale via the B6295 or from Rookhope or the Derwent Valley via a minor road. Whilst this access is easy during good weather, these roads can be closed by heavy snow and have been known, during very severe winters, to be blocked for weeks on end.
There is car parking on the road between the skiing area and the village, with more parking in the village itself and another car park one hundred metres up the hill beside the field.
But please carry a shovel – if there is more than about 10 cms of snow you will have to dig a car parking space.
See map for location. For Satnavs, the Postcode is: NE47 9HW, then walk 20 metres up the Rookhope road & we’re on the lane on the right.
