Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the normal route to the northbound M1 (M40 to Junction 10, then A43 towards Northampton). Carry on the M1 to Junction 29. Exit here and take 2nd exit onto the A617 (signposted Chesterfield). After 5.2 miles at roundabout take the 4th exit onto the A61 (signposted Sheffield, Worksop). At the next roundabout take the 1st exit at the Tesco’s roundabout (Lockford Lane). At the next roundabout take the 3rd exit onto Sheffield Road, B6057. The stadium is on the left just past Tesco’s entrance.
Mileage from High Wycombe = 145 (average journey time 2 hours 30 minutes)
Suggested car parking area
Note that the club car park is for permit holders only. There is nearby street parking available on side roads off the Sheffield road - if you arrive early enough. Don't think about parking in the nearby Tesco store, as the car park is patrolled on match days and you may end up having your car towed away.
Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 09.30. Travel prices are £22 for adults, £21 for seniors, and £20 for juniors. The price for non-members is £27 (no refund if game is cancelled and the coaches have left their depot). If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) you need to do so by Thursday 26th April at 5pm.
Fancy using the train?
I have heard that there will be engineering works that will affect the East Midlands Trains service out of London St Pancras International on the day. Travel will be possible out of Kings Cross or Euston but with a minimum of one change. Chesterfield railway station is walkable from the stadium, although it does take between 20 and 30 minutes. If you wish to travel to the ground by bus a 5-minute walk into the town centre will enable you to catch a bus from Cavendish Street. The Club also has a shuttle bus which departs from Rose Hill by the Town Hall.
Facilities for away fans
Away supporters are normally housed in the Rubicon Print Stand at the north end of the stadium, where up to 2,112 supporters can be seated. Unlike most new stadiums, fans are housed pretty close to the pitch, ensuring good views of the playing action. The leg room is good too. The concourses are built to a high standard, with large flat screen to keep fans entertained. Note that cash is not accepted at the turnstiles, entrance is by ticket only. Away fans can purchase their tickets from the small portakabin located outside the Rubicon Print (North) Stand.
Spare time before or after match?
Just across Sheffield Road from the Proact Stadium is the Spireite Pub. The pub has been recently refurbished and welcomes both home and away supporters. Nearest hostelry to the away end is the ‘Derby Tup’, a five minute walk along Sheffield Road. Further on the same road you come to the handily located North Sea Fish and Chip shop and also the Red Lion pub. Other pubs located near to the stadium such as the Stonegravels, do not admit away fans. Whilst the nearby Donkey Derby Pub which also offers food, is very busy on match days and is predominantly for home supporters. If you are in the town centre “The Rutland Arms” just by the church with the famous crooked spire is well worth a visit. Alcohol is also served inside the ground.
