|Covid-19|Leadgate, Northumberland Wikipedia
Leadgate is a hamlet just outside Chopwell in southern Northumberland, England. It is 7.3 km south east of Stocksfield and 3.0 km north west of central Chopwell. The hamlet borders onto the Metropolitan borough of Gateshead (specifically High Spen), and the eastern edge of Leadgate is actually part of the borough, so effectively, it sprawls between two counties. Most of Leadgate though is part of Northumberland, and the very eastern edge, of the area is the junction between Greenhead Road and Lead Road, which lead to Chopwell (to the south east) and Coalburns (to the north east) respectively. It is home to Northumbria Gliding Club and the area is centred on Leadgate farm. The area is split between the Northumberland ward of South Tynedale and the Metropolitan borough of Gateshead ward of Chopwell and Rowlands Gill.
As a hamlet, Leadgate has a population of only between 20 and 30 people. Nearby Hedley on the Hill, just to the west of the hamlet, has more residents. Leadgate is also the home of Currock Hill farm, to the south of the Northumbria Gliding Club. Leadgate is 9.2 km due south of Prudhoe and is not to be confused with Leadgate, County Durham which is almost 11 km to the south.
