Recommended road directions
Take the normal route to northbound M6 (M40, M42). Leave the motorway at J29 and take the M65 (signed Burnley, Blackburn). Leave the M65 at Junction 7, taking the Clitheroe turn off the roundabout (A6185). Turn right at the first set of traffic lights opposite Clayton Business Park, following the A678 (sign posted Padiham). Follow the road over the canal bridge to the next set of traffic lights. Turn right again going over the motorway bridge and towards Accrington on the A680.  Carry straight on at the next set of lights with the Greyhound pub on your right.  Follow the road as it bends to the right and then take the first left after the Crown pub into Livingstone Road.

Mileage from High Wycombe =  211

Recommended area for car parking
Car parking is available on the streets surrounding the club, and for a small donation, on land adjacent to the ground belonging to a local amateur side. There is no parking at the stadium itself.

Using the train?
Now this fixture is midweek, this is not an option as the last London bound train off Accrington is at 20:21hrs. For anyone travelling up by rail the best route is from Euston changing at Preston. Journey time is a little over 3 hours. Accrington station is about a mile away from the ground – walking time around 20 minutes.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 5,057 (seated 2,000). Visitors are mostly housed in the Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground. This can hold up to 1,800 fans after this area was recently extended. In addition some seats are available in the Whinney Hill Stand. This has a mixture of seating and terrace and has the benefit of some cover, unlike the Coppice Terrace which is open to the elements. The official ASFC programme, containing all latest news, interviews, features and reports is available around the ground priced £3.

Facilities around the ground
The nearest hostelry is “The Crown” just behind the ground on Whalley Road. This is Accrington Stanley’s pub, with all supporters welcome, and every penny spent there helps the club. “The Grey Horse” is just 5 minutes’ walk from the ground heading towards the town centre. This serves a wide selection of drinks all day. Just opposite this hostelry the Oaklea Fish and Chip shop.
