With it being a new venue for this years show, we want to make sure we don't lose anyone in the move!  To that end, we've put together pdf's for travelling by road, along with basic directions for those coming by bus/train as well.

By Road:
Coming down from the North on the A19 (Sunderland, Newcastle, Scotland, etc.) - http://www.pendraken.co.uk/FileBin/BattlegroundDirectionsNorth.pdf
Coming from the East on the A66 (Middlesbrough town, Whitby, Scarborough, etc.) - http://www.pendraken.co.uk/FileBin/BattlegroundDirectionsEast.pdf
Coming up from the South on the A19 (York, Harrogate, Leeds, Sheffield, etc.) - http://www.pendraken.co.uk/FileBin/BattlegroundDirectionsSouth.pdf
Coming over from the West on the A66 (Darlington, Cumbria, etc.) - http://www.pendraken.co.uk/FileBin/BattlegroundDirectionsWest.pdf

By Bus:

Regular services run from Stockton and Middlesbrough to Teesdale and X1 services from Newcastle, Durham, Sedgefield and Middlesbrough stop outside the Holliday Building on University Boulevard.  There are several bus stops on the campus, the closest ones for Battleground being either the Holliday Building stop, or outside the Stockton Riverside College.

By Train:
East Coast Main Line operate high speed services from London, York and Edinburgh to Darlington, with a connection to Thornaby Railway Station.

The Transpennine Express provides a direct approximately hourly service from Manchester Airport, Manchester, Leeds and York to Thornaby.

Northern Rail operate a regular service from Saltburn to Newcastle and Bishop Aukland that stops at Thornaby and Durham.

Once you arrive at Thornaby Station, climb the steps and turn right onto the footbridge.  Walk over the footbridge and turn right along Station Street.  At the roundabout go straight over onto Harvard Avenue, signposted 'University Campus', with the glass fronted buildings on your right.  Continue down this road, past the entrance to Stockton Riverside College, until you reach another roundabout.  Turn right here, signposted 'University of Durham'.  As you reach another roundabout, the venue will be to your right, a white and grey building with the curved sports hall roof visible and 'Durham University Sports' written on the side.



If there are any queries at all on getting here, just get in touch and we'll point you in the right direction!

Looks a bit more complicated than the first map.

 Undecided

I can't remember doing any other maps, aside from the one on the flyer?  It's very easy to get to, you'll be coming over the M62, up the M1, then off onto the A19.  As you get closer to Middlesbrough, you can use the 'From the South' direction pdf.  There are only really two junctions, one to get onto the A66, and then one to come off the A66 next to the venue.

 Cool
