Newcastle Diocese

townbuttonon cramlington

Cramlington is a town of about 30,000 people with a demographic younger than the county average. Its location in south east Northumberland puts it ten miles from the vibrant city of Newcastle, 20 minutes from Newcastle airport, a four-mile cycle ride from the coast, and allows easy access by road to rural Northumberland.

The county is steeped in Christian heritage, has more castles than any other English county, Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Water (the largest man-made lake in Europe), Kielder Forest, the Cheviot Hills and Northumberlandia (the world's largest landform sculpture). It has to be one of the best parts of the country and is a great place for families to thrive.

The town has a wide range of amenities: a shopping centre with supermarkets and large national retailers, a cinema, and a recently refurbished leisure centre.

There are good local schools, a newly-built emergency hospital, and an excellent cycle path network.
