Any recommendations for clubs/ranges in north east england suitable for a beginner with a rifle (used shotguns since my teens).

There's no private full bore ranges Graham, all the clubs in the North East use the MoD ranges at Ponteland, Catterick and Otterburn. I'm a member of the Louisa Centre Gun Club which shoots twice a week on an indoor range for small bore shooting and has an outdoor full bore shoot at least once per month. The indoor range is at Stanley though so a bit of a trek for you.
You could have a look at 3 Counties and Northern Sportsman clubs as they just tend to use the outdoor military ranges.
