How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
The ground is well signposted from the A1(M)

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
Lots of residents only stuff, and no parking on the retail park. But there is a big field on the other side of the dual carriageway to the ground, which has free parking. Bit of a bog after a downpour though...

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Ive been in the East Terrace and the away end. Both unobscured and good views.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
Massively disorganised. They had definitely oversold the away end when Everton played them in the Cup (the attendance was given as about 400 over the official capacity...) and they didnt really know what to do about it.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
When I went in the home end, I was surprised to see cheesy chips so had to do it. Very surprised to get chips with proper homemade cheese sauce poured over! taste sensation! I then go in the away end on my second visit and they dont sell the chips in the away end...they did however sell chicken burgers and that was quite nice too.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Surprisingly excellent, especially considering my first visit was for a JPT game.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Virtually nothing bar the retail park

Overall Score Out of 10?
Location spoils it. Its not a bad little ground for a club Stevenage's size, good food, but the location is really awful. Would score higher if not for that.
7/10

The ground is about 15 minutes walk from the train station and pretty straightforwad

N/A

The away Buildbase stand is all seated and offers excellent views.
How Were The Stewards on The Day?
Seemed fine to me.

Didn't eat there

Very good but then we are rivals. The proximity of the home East Terrace and the away end to each other helps.

Ha! This is Stevenage we're talking about you know..
Overall Score Out of 10?
I'd give it 8/10 as it's a good ground and the away end is fine for most teams that will visit Broadhall Way or the Lamex Stadium, whatever you prefer to call it.
