Our Impressions of Watnall Road
The main Stand (along the touchline) has 250 seats. These are in the middle of the stand and either side of the seating area is terracing. The Doff Portland Stand is located behind on the goals, and is a 4 step terrace. The other 2 sides of the pitch are open, and offer standing.

Directions to Watnall Road
Exit the M1 at junction 27 and follow the A611. Go straight over at the next 2 roundabouts, keeping to the right hand lane after the second roundabout, following the lane markings for Hucknall. Go through the traffic lights on to the dual carriageway, and then turn right at the next roundabout. Go straight over the next roundabout, and after approx half a mile, turn right at the roundabout (the ground is on your right). The Entrance to the ground is 100 Yards on the right hand side.
There is a rail link between Nottingham and Hucknall called the 'Robin Hood Line', this is a half hourly service on a Saturday. The ground is about a 40 minute to walk from the station. Leave the station and walk up station road to the traffic lights (cinema/bingo club on far corner), turn right to the next lights, turn left and this is Watnall Road. Keep walking to the first Roundabout, the ground is on the right.
Andy Parkin has dropped us an e-mail and says 'Train - warning to any fans catching the 'robin hood line' on a week night as the last train that leaves Hucknall to Nottingham is at 22.03 and to Mansfeild at 21.22. There is also no train on this line on a Sunday.'
