Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Fair and Bikes Ride Together in Northallerton

For this year the town’s annual May Fair from 28 April to 2 May coincides with Stage 3 of Tour de Yorkshire on 1 May.

Officers from Hambleton District Council are putting the finishing touches to plans to manage the fair and the tour. Parking, together with bus and taxi collection points, are changed from Wednesday 27 April at 6pm until Tuesday 3 May at 8am. Parts of the High Street between Zetland Street and All Saints Church will be closed during the fair’s opening hours as the fair is set up and dismantled. Diversion routes will be posted throughout the town for drivers.

Alternative arrangements are as follows:-

 The Applegarth long and short stay, Crosby Road long stay and Hambleton Forum longand short stay Pay and Display Car Parks will operate as usual, except for a small number of parking bays in the long stay area of the Applegarth Car Park which will be used by the Showmen’s Guild. Heavy Goods Vehicle Parking will still be available in the Applegarth long stay Car Park. The Civic Centre Car Park will also be available for parking.

 Bus stops will be moved to Zetland Street for northbound services; and outside the library for southbound services. The Town Hall taxi rank will move to Zetland Street.

 There will be additional disabled parking bays outside the Post Office. The Saturday market will be relocated to the southern end of the High Street.

 There will also be extra road closures on 1 May to allow the tour to pass through Northallerton.
