Miller Homes - Hunters Fold,
Living in Middleton St George
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Wallace Fields.
Hunters Fold is well placed for access to the A1(M), and less than a mile from Dinsdale railway station from where trains into Darlington run approximately twice an hour, with a journey time of less than ten minutes. Connections from Darlington include London King’s Cross, Liverpool, Newcastle and Glasgow. The development is around two miles from Durham Tees Valley International Airport, from where there are three flights a day to Schiphol as well as services to Norwegian and Scottish destinations. Buses run every fifteen minutes between the airport and Darlington town centre, stopping around 200 yards away.
Middleton St George’s lively Community Centre is the focal point for much of the local life. As well as children’s activities like dance and drama classes, it is used for fairs, adult keep-fit, social events and private functions. Behind the Community Centre building there is a Water Park comprising three separately stocked angling pools, set in beautiful natural surroundings. The Cricket and Social Club, in addition to sporting activities, hosts live music events, and the nearby Riding Centre offers training at all levels, from novice to experienced show jumpers and dressage riders. The selection of welcoming, traditional pubs in and near the village includes the Fighting Cocks, just yards from Hunters Fold.
There is a good selection of local shops in Middleton St George, including an off-licence and general store, a Londis convenience store with post office services, a pharmacy, hairdressers and pet supplies. The large Morrison’s supermarket around a mile away at Morton Park, which is served by the buses between the airport and Darlington, includes recycling facilities in the car park. The trip into Darlington opens up a choice of more than five hundred shops, a mixture of local independent traders and high street names, in a compact and pleasant environment that includes a Victorian covered market selling local produce, a twice weekly open air market and the more modern mall setting of Cornmill Shopping Centre.
The village has a primary school, St George’s C of E Academy, and the local secondary school in the neighbouring village of Hurworth has an excellent educational record. Middleton St George has both a dental surgery and a wellregarded medical practice with three GPs and full support staff, located close to each other in Middleton Lane.
