COACH TRAVEL INFORMATION:
Departure time 10.15am
M6 south to the end then join A14 .Continue on the A14 for about 47miles then join A1037 (Huntington Road). After about 3miles it will merge into Castle Street (A1134) and after about 300 yards bear left onto Chesterton Lane (A1303). After half a mile at the roundabout at the end of this road turn right onto A1134. Go over the bridge and at the next round about turn left onto Newmarket Road. After quite a short distance you will see a Travelodge on the right, you need the next turning on the right (Coldham Lane). Follow this lane around and you will come to some “field parking!” You are just a pleasant walk across the common to the away end.
WHERE TO PARK:
There is no parking for away fans at the ground and as the away stand is best accessed through the common land then it is better to use the off street parking. Using the Stadium post code for the sat-nav will take you to the wrong area of the ground.
Along one side is the two tiered, all seated Main Stand which has a number of supporting pillars. The Habbin Stand is opposite, used by the home supporters is mostly covered and, like the Main Stand, has a number of supporting pillars. The North Terrace, at one end, runs partway across the pitch, the unused corner housing the supporters’ club.
WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED:
The away supporters are allocated the Marstons Smooth South Stand. This is the newest stand, completed in 2002. It is single tiered; all seated and raised access is via a small set of steps. It offers a good view of the pitch and good facilities. It holds 1,600, but a section of the Habbin terrace can be given if necessary.
The tea bars serve the usual burgers , hot dogs and pies and hopefully the legendary bacon rolls, the smell of which can be very distracting just before half time!
Supporters are advised to stop for a drink in the town as there is very little available near the away area of the ground.
