The ground has a nice combination of new and old, giving it some character. The small Main Stand at one side of the pitch is newish and is seated and all covered. It has no supporting pillars and runs for around a third of the length of the pitch, sitting astride the half way line. It has an unusual looking roof, with a couple of floodlight pylons situated on top, giving it an individual look. On one side of the Main Stand is a small old covered terrace, affectionately known to the local fans as the 'scratching shed', whilst the other side is unused. Opposite is another new looking stand. This small covered terrace runs the full length of the pitch and is where the team dugouts are located (even though the dressing rooms are on the other side of the ground). One end is another small covered terrace, whilst opposite is a very old looking covered terrace that has a number of supporting pillars running across the front of it.
There is a Social Club at the ground. Otherwise five minutes walk away from the ground are the Globe & Gardeners Arms pubs.
Round the corner from the Globe Pub is a handy fish & chip shop.
Leave the M60 at Junction 24 and take the M67 towards Sheffield. Leave the M67 at Junction 3 and at the traffic lights at the top of the slip road, turn right towards Hyde Town Centre. At the second set of traffic lights turn left onto Mottram Road. Pass a Morrisons store on your left and at the first set of lights turn right onto Lumn Road. At the top of the road there is a T-junction where you turn left onto Walker Lane. The entrance to the ground is down on the left just past Hyde Leisure Pool. There is car parking available at the ground or street parking.
