Newcastle International Airport is 30 minutes to the north and Teeside Airport is similarly 30 minutes south.

 

By arrangement
If you are travelling by rail or air, by prior arrangement we are happy to offer visitors a collection or drop-off service.

 

Flexible hours
Our normal opening times are 10.00 to 18.00 Monday to Saturday*. However, we are available after hours and on Sundays by appointment and where possible we operate flexible hours to suit our clients.

How to find us by road
From the south - the main route north is the A1M. Approximately 15 miles north of WETHERBY you need to leave the A1M and take the A168 slip road at DISHFORTH (airfield on right) which is sign posted to the A19 NORTH and TEESSIDE. This leads on to the A19. Stay on the A19 for approximately 40 miles (after about 20 miles you will pass on your right, the huge Teesside industrial complex) until you see the signs as you approach picturesque PETERLEE. Take the slip road before the flyover which is signposted PETERLEE and INDUSTRIAL ESTATES. At the roundabout at the bottom of the slip road take the second exit sign posted NORTH WEST INDUSTRIAL ESTATE - see everyone below.

 

From the north via western bypass
If you are coming from Cumbria via the A69 or from Northumberland/Scotland down the A1 and then on to WESTERN BYPASS, then you will need to get to the A19. From the Western Bypass take the left slip road just after the ANGEL OF THE NORTH, sign posted A1231 to WASHINGTON and A19. Turn right at next roundabout and down dual carriageway for 1/3 mile. Straight over next roundabout sign posted to SUNDERLAND and A19. Proceed for about 5 miles to next roundabout (part time traffic lights) and take third exit sign posted A19 SOUTH. Proceed down A19 for approximately 10 miles passing EASINGTON SERVICES a Shell garage on left and right. After a further 2 miles take the left slip road before the flyover, sign posted PETERLEE and INDUSTRIAL ESTATES. At the roundabout at the bottom of the slip road take the fourth exit, sign posted NORTH WEST INDUSTRIAL ESTATE - see everyone below.

 

From the north via tyne tunnel
If you decide to risk the fumes of the TYNE TUNNEL, then it's dead easy. I think the toll is now £1.20 and you pay at the north end. As you exit the tunnel, once your head clears, just follow signs for for A19 SOUTH and SUNDERLAND. After about 3 miles you will come to TESTO'S ROUNDABOUT. Take the second exit for A19 and TEESSIDE. Proceed down A19 for approximately 12 miles passing EASINGTON SERVICES on left and right. After a further 2 miles take the left slip road before the flyover, sign posted PETERLEE and INDUSTRIAL ESTATES. At the roundabout at the bottom of the slip road take the fourth exit, sign posted NORTH WEST INDUSTRIAL ESTATE - see everyone below.

 

Everyone
As you leave the roundabout you will then pass the CATERPILLAR factory on the left. Proceed for 1/4 mile to next roundabout and take the third exit, sign posted NORTH EAST INDUSTRIAL ESTATE.
This passes under A19 and is LOWHILLS ROAD. Down bank for 2/3 mile to ridiculous mini roundabout and turn left. Immediately turn right at an equally silly mini roundabout into STEPHENSON ROAD. Proceed for 1/3 mile and turn right in to ARMSTRONG ROAD opposite the the main gates of WALKERS CRISPS. Go left at the next roundabout, travel approximately 50 yards and turn right. Proceed up the bank, we are on the left. Look for the SMC sign.
