Driving Hadrian’s Wall: the Minor Car Parks VII (Chollerford)

Chollerford layby (NCC)

Location: N55.030633, W2.129279 Facilities: none

This simple layby on the B6320 (signposted Otterburn and Bellingham at the roundabout), near the village of Chollerford, has enough room for about 8 cars and is useful for a visit to Chesters Bridge Abutment.


As ever, be aware that there are car thieves operating, as there are at all of the car parks along the Wall. Stout footwear is unlikely to be necessary to visit the bridge unless the ground is damp underfoot.

Walking south-eastwards and across Chollerford Bridge brings the visitor to the gateway leading to the path for Chesters Bridge Abutment (1).
