Just a short note to let you know about a road closure at the turn off from the A69 to Beltingham.

The bridge over the Tyne is closed for repairs from 4 September for 6 weeks (toFriday 12 October) Monday to Friday between 0900 and 1600. This will  affect St. Cuthbert's at Beltingham for funerals and weddings during the week. The diversion via Haydon Bridge and then Langley Castle is about an extra 8 miles (depending where you are travelling from) over narrow country lanes and a steep hill. You should allow an extra 20-25 minutes for journey times.
