Radiotelephony oral exam locations

Hello,
I'm struggling to find a list of locations where this exam can be taken? My google-fu is failing. Have found a list of approved examiners but no location details.
Looking for someone in NE England. The closer to Darlington the better.
Thanks.

Sherburn and Hull used to be the place to go to.

Surely your local flying school should have a contact number for a “local” RT Examiner who could conduct the RT Practical?

You would think so, but the local guy passed away. Other schools seem to be sending everyone to Sherburn.

I must admit I do it as a service rather than with a great deal of enthusiasm these days. It's OK when it's blowing a gale outside and but folk need to make bookings and its galling when it's flyable and we're stuck indoors for 3 hours.
