Special Notice

A trial 85/685/X85 route extra bus service has been instigated leaving Haydon Bridge Bridge End at 09-09am (excluding Sundays) to Hexham and on to Newcastle.  Please use this service and help reclaim a very valuable public transport link for the village.  Apparently, it's a case of use it or lose it.  Seniors' bus passes are valid at this time in Northumberland.

A new Arriva timetable came into effect from 7-12-2014
