Getting there
By Car: (approx 65 miles from HW)
From High Wycombe take the A404 to join the M4 westbound. Exit the M4 at junction 15 and follow signs for Swindon for 2 miles to the Coate Roundabout and then follow the "Football Traffic" signs for a further 2 miles to the ground. There is close-by street parking for early comers in Shrivenham Road (a right turn just before the ground) and in Drove Road (a left turn before the ground). Alternatively try the Cricket Ground or Town Centre car-parks.
Train: Swindon station is just over a half mile from the County Ground. It's not exactly convenient from High Wycombe with  connections from Reading or London Paddington.
From Swindon station cross the road and continue up the road between the two pubs. Turn left at the end along Manchester Road. Turn right at the end of this road and look for the County Ground 300 yards on the left.
