C101 Kenton Bar - Horton Grange
This article is about the Class III road numbered C101 maintained by Newcastle upon Tyne Council.
For other roads numbered C101, see C101

The C101 is a relatively long and mostly rural Class III road in the extreme north-west of Newcastle upon Tyne. It begins on the B6918 - formerly the A696 before the building of the bypass - just north of Kenton Bar Interchange. It runs north along Brunton Road, passing suburban housing and retail parks, and crosses the Tyne and Wear Metro at a level crossing adjacent to Kingston Park Station. It continues north through a residential area, complete with traffic calming, before the houses thin out and soon disappear altogether at Brunton Bridge.

The C101 continues from here as a wide country road, skirting the eastern edge of Newcastle Airport, including an emergency access gate. Shortly afterwards it enters the village of Dinnington, running through the village as Main Street. The end point of the road is ambiguous - the council list suggests it may end in Dinnington, but it is assumed that it continues further, leaving the village to the north and continuing through open country all the way to the county boundary at Horton Grange.
