How long does it take to walk there from Ewood Park?
get a taxi
Its more for the way back than the way there like. So a taxi could be a nightmare.
Direct trains back to Leeds stop at about 9-ish. So going to have to change in Manchester and it's turning out to be a nightmare tieing in the changovers after the match has finished.
Not as long as it takes to walk from Alfreton & Mansfield Parkway to Mansfield.
It's a fair distance. There is a stop on the Northern service from York-Blackpool North (if coming from Manchester go to Preston and get a train from their on the reverse service) called Mill Hill that is a five minute walk down a hill to the ground. Don't know times though unfortunately.
I wanted to go this game, but it's turning into a right arse with travel etc. Thought it'd be easier for me as I live Crewe way, but not looking good.
I am taking my motorhome as I will be in work at Halifax the next day.
Yea.. looks like im gonna have to drive to this one.. would have been ideal to get the train but looks impossible
You could probably walk it in about 20mins if you know where you're going and get a bit of a peddle on. It isn't as far from the town centre as you think
i've walked it before mate, its not too far, 25 mins, a few chippys on the way as well!
that correct mate, trains go straight past that stop normally tho
Anyone know how close the the Mill Hill station is from the ground? cheers
10 mins max but train stops very rare
Yeah Mill Hill is right and you are right that not all trains stop there but usually they're very good on match days. If you check ahead you can find which trains - I was in Preston at Uni for 3 years and Mill Hill served me very well including for night games. It's a 5-10minute walk which is far better than the main station.
think I might go. I'll be going via Preston from Crewe. So it's a good shout. Just have to double check about on the way home.
no such station now.
plain old Alfreton.
