Bishop's Stortford Football Club,
Leaves 11.30am; £14 members, £19 non-members; contact the Club Shop to book (01483 772470 or email@example.com) .
Head for the M25 eastbound. From the M25, take M11 north towards Cambridge. Exit M11 at Junction 8. On the M11 roundabout take 2nd exit. Within 200yds is another roundabout. Take 1st exit. After about 400yds take first right (opposite the golf club) into Industrial Estate and follow the road around to your right. The ground and car park (£1) are straight ahead. To ensure a parking space arrive at least 30 minutes before kick-off.
Bishop's Stortford main line rail station is on the Liverpool Street to Cambridge line. Some possible journeys are:
13.10 13.47; 13.28 14.10; 13.40 14.15.
Direct trains back are at 00, 09, 28 and 39 minutes past the hour. The ground is a good 20-minute walk from the station, but there is a taxi rank adjacent to the station exit. If you want to walk, leave the station and bear right, up the slope. Turn right, crossing over the rail line and proceed to T junction. Turn left ('London Road') and walk towards the traffic lights (known as 'Hockerill'). At the lights turn right into the Dunmow Road. This is a long part of the journey by foot. Go straight up this road, passing the 'Red Cow’ pub on your right. You will pass some shops on your left, a Toyota garage on your right and a Land-Rover dealer’s on your left at a roundabout. Continue straight on. At the next roundabout go straight on and the next turning on the left is for 'Woodside Industrial Park'. Turn left into the estate and follow the road round to the right. Continue straight on and the ground is in front of you.
A preview of the match will follow.
