    Lots of local good street free parking with dropped kerbs etc… I think there is also disabled entry at ground.

    Covered area at one end of stadium to right of goal with no sightline problems. Close to kiosk for refreshments. Didn’t use toilets. Overall very good for non-league football stadia.
