What are the grounds like?

Certainly one of the best grounds in the Conference and one which would not look out of place in the Football League. On one side is the all seated covered, Main Stand, that looks quite impressive. It is unusual in so much that 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. Whilst 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, that is covered and is quite steep. Eventhough like the rest ground, the stand is relatively new, it does have a gable with a clock sitting on its roof above the half way line, which gives it a touch of character. At one end is the Buildbase Stand, which is another single tiered all seated covered stand. This stand given to away supporters. There is an electric scoreboard on the roof of this stand. Opposite at the North End of the ground, is a small covered terrace. The ground also has eight floodlight pylons, which are situated in groups of four on both sides of the ground.

What is it like for visiting supporters?

Away fans are located at one end of the ground in the Buildbase Stand. As you would expect from a relatively new stand the facilities and views of the playing action are good. Normally an enjoyable day out and one that fans of most other Conference Clubs look forward to.

Where to drink?

There is a Club House at the ground which is popular with both home and away fans alike. There didn’t seem to be much in the way of pubs near to the ground that I came across. Across the roundabout from the ground there is a Business Park that has various eating outlets such as Pizza Hut, McDonalds & Burger King. Andrew Coates adds; ‘there are numerous chain-pubs in the town centre, as well as the ‘Mutual Friend’ and the ‘Old Forge’ – if walking towards the town centre they are on each of the two roads that pass either side of the ground.

How to get there and where to park?

Leave the A1 (M) at Junction 7 and take the A602 towards Stevenage. Go straight across the first roundabout and as you approach the next roundabout you can see the floodlights of the ground over on the right. However, if you go straight across the roundabout then you will see the entrance on the left to the large official car park which is free. 

By train

The nearest station to the ground is Stevenage which is about one mile away from the ground. Leave the station booking hall and turn left towards the town. Take the stairs on the right before the bridge over the dual carriage way and head along the A602, Lytton Way. At the roundabout which has the police station on the right and Ford dealership on the left. Take the second exit into Six Hills Way. At the next roundabout take the third exit (south) continuing along the A602, Monkswood Way. After about 3/4 mile (McDonalds/Burger King etc will be on your right) you will arrive at a  roundabout and the ground will be opposite you on the other side of the A602.
