VISITOR PARKING

Visitors to the physic garden will be prepared for a short (5minute) walk to the garden entrance gate. This is a pleasant walk along a riverside lane, which is also a public footpath, but please note that it has an incline at the end (for a flat walk park in our Top-up car park – see right).

Please note:

  • Wear footwear suitable for a muddy lane!
  • Follow the lane by the river, after 75m the path turns up to the right and there is an incline between 2 houses, the physic garden entrance gate is on the right at the top of the incline.

TALK, COURSE, EVENT & VOLUNTEER PARKING

Directions for Dilston Top-up Car Park 

  • A695 from Corbridge (east), the grass-field car park is 200yds towards Hexham, after the small bridge over the Dyvel’s water – turn left directly at the top of the hill.
  • A695 from Hexham (west), turn right into the grass-field car park directly at the top of the only hill descent coming from Hexham, 200yds before the Dyvel’s Water bridge (if you reach the red Dilston Physic Garden sign or bridge you have gone too far).
  • On entering the lane turn directly left through the gate into the roadside field (the gate may be closed if you’re the first there) – please do not drive down the private scout camp lane.
  • Enjoy the 7-9 minutes flat walk along the lane, turning left onto the public footpath at the cottage and after 250yd the Physic Garden entrance gate is on the left. Bring footwear for a muddy lane!
