How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)?
I've only ever been via train. By car, Kidderminster is close to the M5, M40 and M42 so plenty of ways to get the ground from whatever part of the country you're travelling from. By train it's a 5-10 minute walk from the station and the ground can be clearly seen so easy to navigate towards. I used to travel from Aberystwyth and changed at Smethwick Galton Bridge to get on the line which went to Kidderminster. 9/10

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
N/A

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I was in the away terrace behind the goal both times. It's a cantilevered stand with a low roof but the sightlines are perfect. Those who choose the main stand, it's also cantilevered and the steps aren't too shallow restricting views of the pitch. 10/10

How Were The Stewards on The Day?

Only recall seeing the stewards around the turnstiles, I don't ever recall them being in the actual stand. That said there were plenty on hand who I'm sure were assisting with requests and could have stopped any potential trouble. 7/10

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Do I need to say anything here? The Cottage Pie is an absolute must, it was around £4 when I was last there in 2011 but it's essentially a lunch, you get that much of it! Excellent quality as well, well worth the price. They do the usual burgers, chips as well and they're not bad either... but it's all about the cottage pie. 10/10

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Something else which scores highly. Because the ends behind both goals have fairly low roofs, the sound resonates around the ground. I imagine you could make a racket with just 50 away supporters behind the goal. I'm docking them a point though because they play(ed) goal music whenever Harriers scored. 9/10

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
N/A - there's one rough looking pub along the street adjacent to the station and a KFC.

Overall Score Out of 10?

I really like Aggborough, so much so I visited again the following season (see, there were upsides to Luton's continual capitulations). Food is great, atmosphere is great and it's convenient to get to. 9/10

I don't really need to add any more to that. Aggborough is a great ground with fantastic food. 10/10 for me.

It's worth knowing for us veggies that they also do a cheese and onion pie in their range. I normally whinge about portions being small wherever I go, but this thing was just right. Normally there isn't owt to eat at grounds for me, but this baby means I don't have to pack a lunch or subsist on nuts from the pub.

Just a word of warning about the food outlets. There are two that cater to away fans but the one furthest away from the away turnstiles doesn't have as big a choice!
