Course is better than Topgun paintball at swallwell. slightly better course than Under Siege at Towlaw. Costing is about the same.
Directions to the Field:
5-10Miles past tow law, near bishop auckland
Only been to this site once in 2006 so may have changed. Hosted in the Grounds of Whitton Castle,
Parking is in castle grounds, Toilets in Castle, Bar as well. On site - Tea and Coffee facilities, dinner can be provided in the castle bar. Food was basic but good, in fact Pie and Peas is far more than most paintball sites provide. Bit of a hike down to the site itself on foot from castle.
Know what there on about, do their job well very friendly.
In my opinion probably the best local course in this part of the north east. Steep wooded area, plenty of different games, a tough king of the hill, great over bridges and natural rivers, good close range ones as well. Timing is about right for each game
Given standard Camo overalls, clean, gloves and face mask. Face masks where a bit poor in 2006, foggy type. Guns are inferno types, well maintained, marshals carry spares. Very friendly and dont mind bringing your own equipment
Good strict safety rules which dont hamper fun play.
Costing - Good fair prices, very reasonable. Average for local area.
Marks - 8 out of 10, very good course indeed, a bit out in the sticks for some people.
