Accrington By Road/Parking

The following is from the footballgroundguide site;
https://www.footballgroundguide.com...gton-stanley.html#adirections-and-car-parking

Leave the M6 at Junction 29 and take the M65 towards Blackburn. Continue past Blackburn towards Accrington and leave the M65 at Junction 7. Then take the left hand exit at the roundabout onto the A6185 towards Clitheroe (this is in the opposite direction to Accrington). At the first set of traffic lights turn right onto the A678, towards Padiham, and then at the next traffic lights, turn right onto the A680 towards Accrington. After about half a mile along the A680 you will pass the Crown pub on your left. Take the next left into Livingstone Road and then an immediate left for the Club car park. The car park is on the small size and costs £5 and as you would expect it fills up pretty quickly. Otherwise street parking.

Post Code for Sat-Nav: BB5 5BX

From the footballgrounsguide site:
https://www.footballgroundguide.com...rown-ground-accrington-stanley.html#aby-train

Accrington Railway Station is about a mile away from the ground. It is served by trains from Manchester Victoria and Leeds. Leave the station and travel down the slope (signposted M65 Blackburn) towards the large viaduct roundabout in the centre of town. Take the Milnshaw Lane exit at the opposite side of the roundabout alongside the Perry's Peugeot dealership. After approximately 100 metres this road then joins Whalley Road. Bear left up the hill and follow Whalley Road for about a mile, passing the hospital, a set of traffic lights and then a mini roundabout. Take the next right after the mini roundabout junction into Livingstone Road. The football club is approximately 100 metres on the left on Livingstone Road. Thanks to Rob Heys for providing the directions.

WHAT’S IT LIKE FOR AWAY FANS

The following is from the footballgroundguide site;
https://www.footballgroundguide.com...html#awhat-is-it-like-for-visiting-supporters

Away fans are mostly housed in the Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground, where up to 1,800 fans can be accommodated. In addition around 500 fans can be accommodated in the new Eric Whalley Stand on one side of the pitch. Although having only around six rows of seats the Eric Whalley Stand does have a roof, unlike the Coppice Terrace which is open to the elements. The Club currently don't charge fans any extra to sit in this seated stand. The Coppice Terrace is of a reasonable height and is located quite close to the playing action, so it allows fans to get a good view of the game. The facilities located behind the stand are adequate.
