Getting here
We are close to the shops in Fewster Square, in the Gateshead Council @ Leam Lane building.

To reach us by car:
Travel from Gateshead along the Felling Bypass. At the Heworth roundabout take the third exit toward Heworth metro and St Mary's church taking the first left at this mini roundabout. Bear right and go straight over the mini-roundabout towards Felling Cricket Club. Go straight ahead to the lights at The Ship Inn and turn left. Travel straight along Colegate reaching St Augustine's school and church. The Library is on the left before the junction and has a car park.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
