WHERE TO PARK
Coaches park right outside the turnstiles, but there is very little parking for cars. Supporters are therefore advised to use coach or train travel.
The club was re-located to the 20,000 capacity New Den in 1993. All four sides are double tiered, although each corner is empty, apart from one which holds a big screen.
The Cold Blow Lane End behind one goal houses the home supporters; the East (Dockers Stand) and West (Barry Kitchener) Stands are along each side, with the latter having the dugouts and executive boxes.
WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED
The visiting supporters are accommodated in the double tiered North Stand, which holds 4,000 supporters usually using the upper tier only. This gives an excellent view of the pitch and the high stand helped to distance the home fans so nullifying the intimidating atmosphere associated with The New Den.
There are many fish and chip shops within walking distance of the ground, one being the Fish Republic. To locate it simply walk onto Bolina Road, which runs alongside the New Den, then carry straight round to Zampa Road and turn left into Ilderton Road – a short walk will get you to your meal.. The last time we visited we enjoyed the chips from the kiosk in the ground where there is a variety of food on offer including chicken to go with the chips.
It is strongly advised to use the bars inside the ground, especially if arriving by coach as you are delivered straight to the turnstiles.. It is also advised to avoid any pubs near the ground and avoid wearing Vale colours if having to walk any distance to the ground.
