Whether travelling from the North or South come off at Junction 63 and take the A690 into Durham City. Follow the road and carry on over the Milburngate Bridge across the river. At the next Traffic Lights and mini-roundabout take the 3rd exit on the A691 to Consett (effectively you are turning right). Following this road on the A691 over several roundabouts and Lanchester is 6 miles along that road. Turn left into the village and immediately right at the Kings Head into Front Street. Look at for the Post Box on RHS and The Old Post Office is next to that at No 27 Front Street.
Arrangements for pick up can be done with the owners, if available. Otherwise take a taxi to Lanchester Village to The Old Post Office, 27 Front Street on the main road through the village or walk down to the Durham Bus Station and catch the 15 or 15A to Consett and Lanchester is roughly halfway. Get off the bus and walk straight ahead on the RHS and The Old Post Office is 27 Front Street next to the red post box.
From Arrival take the Metro to Newcastle Central Station. Transfer to the Southbound trains that stop at Durham Station (the next stop around 12 minutes journey).
The Bus Station is based in North Road, Durham City, a short walk downhill from the Durham Railway Station. The Bus connection is the 15 or 15A from Durham to Consett, which runs every 30 minutes straight into Lanchester Village. Once exited from the bus cross the road and walk in the direction of the bus for 150 metres on the Front Street and you come straight to The Old Post Office at 27 Front Street, just past the Post Box.
