A traditional old looking ground that has been brightened up by replicating the team's blue & white stripes on the stands around the stadium. On one side is the colourful looking Main Stand, which is seated and covered. It has some supporting pillars along the front of the stand and runs for around half the length of the pitch. It is situated on the half way line and the areas to either side of the stand are unused. Opposite is a terrace that is covered towards the middle. One is a small open terrace, whereas the other end is not really used for spectators. In fact this area which houses the Club Offices tends to be detriment to the overall look of the ground. The stadium though does have a set of classic looking floodlights.
The Club has its own club house bar called the 'Crossbar'. Otherwise if you carry on along Wilkie Road then you will reach the 'Tally Ho' pub on your left.
The Tally Ho pub mentioned above also serves food. Alternatively, if you continue along the Walney Road (A590) towards the town centre, then you will reach a retail park that has a number of eating outlets including a McDonalds, plus on Walney Road is the 'Owl & The Pussycat' pub.
M6 Junction 36, onto A590 signposted Barrow. Follow A590 all the way to the outskirts of Barrow, entering via industrial route towards the Town Centre. Passing the fire station on the right, take the next left into Wilkie Road. The ground is on the right hand side. Post code for Sat-Nav is LA14 5UW. Plenty of street parking is available.
