Going 2 Aggborough
April 6, 2015
The trick to finding the ground is to follow signs for the ‘Severn Valley Railway’ (lots of steam trains if you are into that sort of thing!), which is well signposted. The ground is just behind the station.
From Birmingham, Wolverhampton and North (M5):
Leave the M5 at Junction 3. Take the A456 towards Kidderminster. On entering the outskirts of Kidderminster, turn left at the traffic lights at the junction with the A449, by the Land Oak Public House. Turn right at the next lights and proceed towards the town centre, passing the Severn Valley Railway Station on your left. Turn left into Hoo Road which is just before the roundabout. The ground is up this road on the left.
From Worcester and South (M5):
Exit M5 at junction 6 (signposted A449) and follow towards Kidderminster (approximately 15 miles). At first roundabout, take third exit (signposted A449, Kidderminster & Wolverhampton), then take first turning on left before railway bridge. Go down Hoo Road, over railway bridge, and Aggborough Stadium is on the right hand side.
From South-East (M40 & M42):
Leave M5 at junction 4 (signposted A491 Stourbridge). After approximately 5 miles, turn left onto A456 and follow towards Kidderminster. At roundabout on Kidderminster Ring Road, take first exit (signposted A451 Stourport). At next roundabout, take first exit (signposted A448 Bromsgrove), then take first turning on right into Hoo Road for the ground.
There are two fair sized car parks at the ground, but it can sometimes be difficult to get away quickly after the game.
It is worth noting that the car park behind the away terrace costs £5 for cars and £10 for mini buses, whilst the car park behind the opposite home end is free.
Otherwise you can park at the Severn Valley Railway station for £3 and around to the ground.
The ground is walkable (10 minutes) from Kidderminster railway station, which is served by trains from Birmingham Snow Hill. Just come straight out of the station and go past the Severn Valley Railway station on your left. Go down the hill and turn left into Hoo Road and the ground is up this road on the left.
Jon Hall adds; ‘A simpler route involves cutting through the old cattle market. In fact the ground can be seen from outside the front of the station. When leaving the train station head down Comberton Hill.
Take the first left turn into Comberton Place (the empty Farmers pub is on the corner). Walk along Comberton Place, past the law courts on the left hand side, and head down an alley towards the ground.
This alley brings you out at the bottom of the car park behind the home (north) terrace and near the Kidderminster Harriers Social and Supporters Club. The ground is clearly visible once you pass the law courts’.
