WHERE TO PARK:

Car park by the ground normally free.

OVERVIEW OF THE GROUND:

On one side is the impressive all seated covered Main Stand. Oddly at the back of the stand on either side of it, there are large gaps between the back of the roof and the stand below.  In the middle of the stand at the back, there are a number of glass fronted areas to various Club offices.

Opposite is the fair sized East Terrace, which is covered and quite steep.  It has a gable with a clock sitting on its roof by the half way line, adding a little character.

At one end is the South Stand, given to the away supporters – an electric score board on this stand. Opposite is the North End which has a small covered terrace.

WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED:

Away fans are located in the South Stand with room for up to 1,400 fans.  This  is a relatively new stand affording good views and facilities.

WHERE TO GET A DRINK:

There is a Club House at the ground which is popular with both home and away fans.  There are no notable pubs near by, but chain pubs line the road towards the town centre.

WHERE TO EAT:

Across the roundabout there is a business park that has various eating outlets such as Pizza Hut, McDonalds and Burger King.

Vale supporters found the egg and bacon baguettes served in the ground very tasty, although strong jaws were needed, so the dentally challenged should consider taking their own soft baps!  There were also chips and the normal pies, pasties and burgers.  The refreshment bar was a cut above the average.

THE STADIUM:

Opened in 1906 the ground had 4 separate stands. The stand which was demolished in 2008 has at last been replaced   with a stand having corporate, conference and office facilities. The George Hill main stand is opposite.  This stand houses the dugouts, along with the executive boxes. The seats of the main stand don’t run the full length of the pitch, and foundations of former standing areas can still be seen. At one end is the is theJimmy Frizzell Stand, which is named after a former. This all seater covered stand with an electric scoreboard on its roof. Additional seating was installed in this stand to fill the gap that had used to separate home and away sections.

WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED:

Over 3000 fans can now be seated in the Zen Office Stand which is at the opposite end to where we have normally sat. Its age is shown by the number of supporting pillars.  Again fans enter the ground from the back of the stand

FOOD:

When coming off the A627 heading to the ground, there is a retail park with Macdonalds, Pizza Hut, Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken  - so plenty of choice. Alternatively try the stadium food – they have provided chips in the past and recent visitors have rated their cottage, steak and pepper and cheese and potato pies.

DRINK:

There are many pubs around the ground, with the Clayton Arms right next Boundary Park. There is also the Greyhound pub, which is across Broadway down Holden Fold Lane.  By passing behind the away end, turning left into Shepford Road, turning left again into Oldham road the Old Grey Mare can be found; further up the street is the White Hart – giving Vale fans enough choice.
