Now Carpark is closed.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to work out alternatives now that Wednesdayite car park is closed.

I know posters on here tell us that there is no problem finding parkin spaces if you are prepared to walk

a reasonable distance but I do have a problem with walking. I can manage a fair distance on level ground

before I experience enough pain to make me stop and rest, however walking uphill gives  me condiderable

pain within a few yards.

 

Does anyone on here know (I suppose someone will:rolleyes:) about what time does the supertram park and ride

at Middlewood become full on matchdays.

 

Any other suggestions would be welome.  Thanks!

Hi mate, I've been parking at the Park and Ride on Middlewood road for years As long as you leave about 30 minutes I've never not got a place (even for blades games)

Also you can do park only on the pay screens, costs about 3quid ish

Thanks Woody, that sounds like it could be the answer.

 

Hope nobody else is reading this.

I use the tram when I go to matches, it's okay going if you get there early, nightmare return after the match unless  you leave it till all supporters have gone.

Would not recommend at all.

You can park in the garage at the junction of Leppings Lane and Penistone rd. For a small fee (not sure how much)

It's all a bit odd.

Get there too early and there's no one there, can park for free it seems but I was too nice and went inside and asked.

Get there at a normal time and some old bloke in a high-viz who doesn't seem too switched on to life in general takes £5 off you.

No ticket or anything and very nonchalant. I'm betting if you got there early and parked in a regular place, they wouldn't notice and park for free.

Never tried it though.

Think my horse box is too obvious.

Thanks for advice, but considering  using the car and parking at park and ride. Maybe using the tram.from park and ride

to Leppings Lane.

Anyone know how busy the tram is after the game from Leppings lane to Middlewood?

Just make your way to Silverwood Working Mens Club in Dalton, Rotherham, where you would be made most welcome.

 

Relax and enjoy a drink or two in the salubrious surroundings of the club, served by the glamourous bar staff.

 

Then be entertained by stories of old by your fellow travellers who will revel in the telling of their tales to a new victim friend.

 

You will whisked to the match in style by luxury coach (well it was in 1974) and dropped off at the Wednesdayite car park. 

 

Just £7 leave about 14:00 and arrive back at the club for 17:45
