Northumberland County Council have just informed us that the C254 road to Wylam will be closed for possibly three days sometime between 6 August until 13 September.
This is due to Northumbrian Water installing a new water main.
You will have noticed that there are serious earthworks going on in the field to the north of the road close to the Hermitage. Looks like Northumbrian Water need to link this up with the extraction plant on the riverbank.
Diversion signs will be put in place.
