Stamfordham Parish Council

CYCLONE FESTIVAL OF CYCLING

 

Dear Stamfordham Resident

 

Key information for the 2021 HSBC National Series Cycle Races Sunday 26th September 2021

 

A short stretch of the main road in the village (either side of the main bus stop) will be closed to allow the Start/Finish gantry and crowd barriers for the event to be installed and dismantled.

Access to and from North & South Sides will remain open during these times.

 

The closures are identified as Saturday 25th Sept 5.30pm – 6.30pm and Sunday 26th September

7.00am – 8.00am & Sunday 5.55pm – 6.55pm. However we should not need the full stated time and we hope to keep the closures as short as possible. As outlined above, North & South Sides are open at these times.

 

All roads in Stamfordham will be closed for the women’s race start at 8.40am – 9.00am.

The race then heads out onto the race circuit, with a continued rolling road closure of up to 20 minutes; through Black Heddon, West Belsay, Little Bavington, Colwell, Ryal and Matfen. This should take approximately an hour between 9.00am – 10.00am and again between 10.00am – 11.00am. There will then be a shorter circuit which includes Wallridge, Ingoe and Matfen between 11.00am – 11.30am before the race finish with all roads fully open by 11.45am.

 

All roads will be open between 11.45am – 12.55pm as there are no races at this time.

 

All roads in Stamfordham will be closed again for the men’s race start 12.55pm – 1.15pm.

The race then heads out onto the race circuit, with a continued rolling road closure of up to 20 minutes; through Black Heddon, West Belsay, Little Bavington, Colwell, Ryal and Matfen. This should take approximately 50 minutes each time for the men’s race and they will complete this circuit 4 times. There will then be a shorter circuit which includes Wallridge, Ingoe and Matfen between 4.40pm – 5.10pm before the race finish, with all roads fully open by 5.25pm.

 

Please note the above times may vary due to circumstances beyond our control, and can only be given as an approximate guide. Rolling road closures along the route can be up to 20 mins but may also vary. The women’s race has 2 big circuits and 1 small circuit and the men’s race has 4 big circuits and 1 small circuit, with the start and finish in Stamfordham each time.

 

Stamfordham and surrounding villages play a key role in the event, providing well-earned fuel for those taking on the Cyclone Challenge and as a base to see elite cycle racing in the region. All who pass through comment on how well they are treated by the residents, underlining the important part the village plays in the success of the event.

 

We would like to say a big thank you in advance for your support, hospitality and tolerance during the weekend, and most of all for allowing us to stage these races in your village and the surrounding area. We really appreciate it.

 

We hope as a resident of Stamfordham you are looking forward to the event as much as we are and we look forward to seeing you at the event.

Welcome to Stamfordham Parish

The Village of Stamfordham lies on the southern hillside sloping down to the little river Pont, with a church at the west end. The Church of St.Mary was largely rebuilt in 1848 when an Anglian cross shaft was found, indicating that there had been a church on the site at an early date, probably thirteenth century. The name of Stamfordham is Old English, meaning "the homestead by the Stoney Ford".

The houses stand round a large village green, towards the western end of which stands the Market Cross, built in 1735 by Sir Edward Swinburne of Capheaton. There is one pub, The Swinburne Arms.

Stamfordham Parish is in rural Northumberland, about 12 mile west of Newcastle upon Tyne. The area covered consists of the village of Stamfordham and the hamlets of Dalton, Eachwick, Harlow Hill and Heugh, and also Albemarle Camp, together with numerous farm settlements.

There is also an excellent village school which can be visited via our "links" page.

The total number of people on the electoral roll is 734.
