How To Get There: Leave Bristol heading north on the M5. Join the M6 and at junction 2a exit onto the M60 towards Leeds, then continue onto the M62. Exit the M62 at Junction 20 and take the A627(M) towards Rochdale. At the end of the A627(M) you should be in the left hand lane to turn left at the traffic lights. Now follow the road, go straight through the next set of lights (approach in the middle lane) into Roch Valley Way. At the next crossroads go straight onto Sandy Lane, where the ground can be found on the right after approx 3/4 mile.
Car Parking at the ground is now for permit holders only, so it is a case of either street parking or using the matchday parking facility at Oulder Hill School. The school is located on the way up to the ground, on the left hand side, along Sandy Lane.
