Ashford Town (Middlesex) - Short Lane

Short Lane, Stanwell, Middlesex, England, TW15 3LJ



Our Impressions of Short Lane

The ground is fairly basic, and very close to Heathrow so you can see (and hear) the aeroplanes taking off at frequent intervals, and there is a rather ominous looking power plant of some sort being one goal. The ground itself is set in a complex and is just down the road from the cricket and hockey clubs. There is no cover at either end, so once again a coat may be an idea. Along one side there are a couple of terraces next to each other, with a toilet block next to them. On the other side is a neat little main stand with seating.

Directions to Short Lane

By Road

From M25

Leave M25 at Junction 13, on to the A30 and follow the signs for London. Remain on the A30 across the Crooked Billet Roundabout and continue until you reach a crossroads with Traffic Lights (Ashford Hospital on the left - Harvester pub on the right). Continue straight across the crossroads and proceed along the A30. Short Lane is the 3rd turning on the left, by a footbridge spanning the road. Ashford Town F.C. is the second sportsground on the right, immediately past the Esso sportsground, and just before the first house on the right hand side of Short Lane.

By Train

Ashford BR station is over two miles from the station, so a cab ride is essential. Should not cost too much.

By Tube

Hatton Cross on the Piccadilly line is the nearest tube station. It is the stop before Heathrow on this line. However, it is even further away than the BR station and it's more likely to be harder to get a cab, so going by mainline rail is advised. Data supplied by Will Clutton - 9th September 2003

Local Area around Short Lane

Ashford is not the most attractive town, being right next to Heathrow, and I felt slightly uncomfortable there, despite being in a group. However, you're unlikely to encounter too much trouble there, especially during the daytime.
