How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
Went on the train. You can see the ground as you pull into the station as its just around the corner. So close, I was out of the ground and on the train home at 5pm and didnt have to leave early!

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

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I had a terrace ticket so moved between the North Stand and East Bank terraces. Few pillars on both.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problems.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Didnt eat

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
The noise in the East Bank was fantastic.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Not a whole lot, but a few places to eat and drink on the High Street.

Overall Score Out of 10?
One of my favourite smaller grounds
8/10

Train is easy and cheap from London, and not a long walk from the station to the ground - although it's a relatively steep hill if you've got weak legs. The lead into the turnstiles is fantastic as well - you have to go through a mini-forest. It's great.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
Plenty of sidestreets that I imagine are ok with parking.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
The East Bank is a proper old fashioned terrace, big and creates a fantastic noise if you've got a bunch of singing fans. Although there's a few pillars in the way, you can excuse that for the fantastic roof which really tunnels the noise. One of my favourite away ends.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problems.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Food was decent and fairly priced from memory - just watch out for the sauces, unbeknownst to me I stuck chilli sauce on my burger instead of tomato and didn't realise until I chomped into it.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
All the noise comes from the East Bank thanks to the roof and it's great. One of the best stands I've been in as I've already said.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Attractions are a bit on the short side, but there's a few pubs in the surrounding area. One on the corner opposite the away end entrance which lets in away fans, and also a number more in the town centre where there's also things like bookies etc - it has all of your away day essentials.

Overall Score Out of 10?
Cracking ground and a decent away day, even if I haven't seen a desired result in my two visits.

7/10

What's not to like about a ground which you have to walk through a park to get to? The hill up from the station towards the park entrance is a bit steep but it's hardly intimidating. I liked the fact that I could move between the East and South East Terraces as well. The East Bank is a proper old school terrace and the whole ground is very charming.
I'd give this 8/10.
