A guide to Brunton Park for Southend United fans...
Ground Name: Brunton Park
Address: Warwick Road, Carlisle, CA1 1LL
Tel Number: 01228 526 237
Nickname: The Cumbrians
Home Kit Colour: Blue and White
Away fans are housed on one side of the Story Homes (East) Stand (towards the Petterill End) where around 2,000 fans can be accommodated. This all seated, covered stand is located at one side of the pitch. It is fairly modern and the facilities within, plus the view of the playing area are good. For larger games then the Petterill End terrace can also be allocated which houses around 1,700 supporters.
HOW TO GET THERE:
By Car: The ground is easy to find. Leave the M6 at junction 43 and take the A69 towards Carlisle. After a mile the ground is on your right (look out for the statue of a footballer on the corner).
By Train: Brunton Park is situated about a mile from Carlisle Citadel station, but is relatively easy to get to. Upon exiting the station's main entrance, walk the short distance around the Crescent until reaching Warwick Road. You will be able to see the old Main Stand and the strangely shaped roofs of the Warwick Road end after walking for about twenty minutes. There are directions to the away supporters' turnstiles above the Carlisle United club shop.
The club car park (cost £2.50) can be found by taking the first right immediately after Brunton Park into Victoria Place and then turn first right onto St Aidans Road. Otherwise street parking.Thanks to www.footballgroundguide.com for the details.
