By Road

Exit the M62 at Junction 20 and take the A627(M) towards Rochdale. At the end of the A627(M) you should be in the left hand lane to turn left at the traffic lights.

Now follow the road and with Tesco on your left, go straight through the next set of lights (approach in the middle lane) into Roch Valley Way.

At the next crossroads (where the Cemetery pub is on the corner) go straight onto Sandy Lane, where the ground can be found on the right after approx 3/4 mile.

Car Parking

Car Parking at the ground is now for permit holders only, so it is a case of either street parking or using the matchday parking facility at Oulder Hill School. The school is located on the way up to the ground, on the left hand side, along Sandy Lane (it is then a 10 minute walk uphill to the ground).

By Rail

Rochdale station, which is served by trains from Manchester Victoria and Leeds, is about 2 1/2 miles and a 35-minute walk from the ground and most visiting fans recommend getting a taxi. However, for those with excess energy, cross the roundabout outside the station, keeping left into Lower Tweedale Street. At its end, turn right into Manchester Road.

Having passed Drake Street, cross the dual carriageway at the pedestrian crossing and continue in the same direction as previously.

Turn left in Dane Street, which leads into Mellor Street. At the end of Mellor Street, turn left into Spotland Road and left again into Willbutts Lane for the ground.
