Travel
By Adrian Wood

Recommended road directions
Take the normal route to the northbound M6 (M40 and M42). Continue on the M6 as far as J43. At the Rosehill roundabout take the 1st exit onto the A69. The blue roof of the Pioneer Foods Stand can be seen on the right hand side, almost as soon as you leave the roundabout.  Keep going straight ahead along Warwick Road. After passing through the third set of traffic lights, you come to the ground on your right hand side. The Club Shop and Hugh McIlmoyle statue mark the main entrance to the ground.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 288

Recommended area for car parking
Directions to Main Car Park: From the M6 turn right at the third set of traffic lights and drive through the gates and behind the Pioneer Foods Stand to enter the car park. Cars are charged £2.50. Otherwise there is some street parking available.

Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 07.00. Travel prices are £33 for adults, £32 for seniors, and £31 for juniors. The price for non-members is £37 (no refund if game is cancelled). If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (bookings@owwsa.co.uk) you need to do so by Thursday September 22nd at 5pm.

Using the train?
Virgin Trains operate a regular direct service from London Euston with the quickest journey time 3 hours 16 minutes. Recommended return services off Carlisle that evening are at 17:52 and 18:52. Walking directions from Carlisle Citadel Station; walk straight ahead across Botchergate and walk along The Crescent until you see the start of Warwick Road on the right, next to Nandos. Brunton Park is about a 20 minute walk from the start of Warwick Road.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 17,949. Away fans are usually housed in the north end (blocks 2 and 3) of the Pioneer Foods Stand on the east side of the ground. This is a relatively new covered, all seated stand that has food and drink outlets in the concourse underneath. The view of the playing area is good. The main telephone number is 01228 526237 and email address enquiries@carlisleunited.co.uk

Facilities around the ground
The nearest hostelry to the ground is ‘The Beehive’ on Warwick Road. This tends to get very busy on match days. There is also the ‘Howard Arms’ on Lowther Street. This is just off Warwick Road, towards the Town Centre, down from the ‘White House’. Another option is the Carlisle Rugby Club next to Brunton Park on Warwick Road which has a club bar, allows in away supporters, and is family friendly. Finally if you leave the M6 at Junction 43 and take the A69 towards Carlisle, you will pass a Toby pub/carvery which is not that far from the ground.
