Recommended road directions
Take the M40 signposted Oxford. At Junction 8 branch left and follow the A40 towards Oxford. At the Headington roundabout, take the 3rd exit (signposted Ring Road, The North). After 3.7 miles, at the Banbury Road roundabout, take the second exit, and at the next roundabout take the third exit (signposted Cheltenham A40). Follow A40 into and through Charlton Kings. At traffic lights where Cirencester Road joins from left, go straight on. At next set of lights, turn right into Hales Rd. This is the B4075 (signposted Prestbury). After 0.5 mile bear right, staying on the B4075 as it becomes Priors Road. Take the next left into Whaddon Road, continue over a mini roundabout, and the ground is on the right hand side.
Mileage from High Wycombe = 67
Recommended area for car parking
There are a limited number of spaces available in the Club car park at the ground which cost £5 (to book phone 01242 573558, select option 1). The Parklands Social Club does allow some parking at £4 per car. To find this club goes down Whaddon Road, passing the ground and the bowling club on your left. Take the first left hand turn and the entrance to the social club car park is a short distance down on the left. Note that there is little in the way of nearby street parking close to the stadium.
Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 16:30. Travel prices are £14 for adults, £13 for seniors, and £12 for juniors. The price for non-members is £18 (no refund if game is cancelled). Note that OWWSA has added card payment to their methods of payment. Members will be able to pay at the Vere Suite, on the coach or by telephone. Non members are required to pay before travelling, so this means either by telephone or in the Vere Suite. If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (email@example.com) you need to do so by Wednesday December 28th at 5pm.
Using the train?
This is not really practical on this Friday evening as the railway station is over two miles from the ground. In addition, according to my latest information, the last train off Cheltenham that evening is at 22.01 arriving back in Paddington at 00.34 (after changing at Swindon).
Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 7,066 (3,912 seated). Away supporters are housed in the Hazlewoods Stand (covered seating) at one end of the ground, where just over 1,100 supporters can be accommodated. The view of the playing area from the Hazlewoods Stand and the facilities inside are good, plus it has good leg room.
Facilities around the ground
There is a club bar at the ground called the Robins Nest which allows in small numbers of away fans for a £1 admittance fee. Away from the ground, coming recommended is The Kemble Brewery Inn (CAMRA) on Fairview Street. Alternatively about a 10-minute walk away are The Sudley Arms (Prestbury Road) and The Conservatory on Winchcombe Street. There is also The Parklands Social Club (see above under Car Parking). Finally along Hewlett Road (again a 10-minute walk away) can be found The Hewlett Arms and The Fairview.
