Pilsworth Road merges with Croft Lane soon after with no visible indication. After approx. 1.1 miles, the road comes to a mini roundabout with Hollins Lane and Hollins Brow. Carry on in the same direction and onto ‘Hollins Brow’, this road then curls round to the right before meeting Manchester Road and traffic lights at the bottom of the hill.

Once you turn onto Gigg Lane, the Stadium can be found approx. 200 yards up the road on the right hand side.

From the M60 (Junction 17 – signposted A56 Whitefield & Prestwich)): (3.4 miles to the ground) Leave the motorway at junction 17 and follow the signs for Bury (A56 Bury New Road).

Once you turn onto Gigg Lane, the Stadium can be found approx. 200 yards up the road on the right hand side.

We strongly advise all travelling supporters using the Metrolink to check on their website for any engineering works - http://www.metrolink.co.uk
