NB for SAT NAV users
Most Sat Navs direct traffic into Headlam via the back lane to the north, even if you are travelling from the south. This lane is short but very narrow with limited passing places. The access roads to Headlam from the south are better roads (and a more scenic approach).
Also, the postcode for Headlam of DL2 3HA is for the whole village. If you follow you Sat Nav to termination you will arrive at the post box on the dead-end road of the village green! Once in the village it is best to discard the Sat Nav instructions and Headlam Hall can be clearly seen from the road that runs through the village.
