Sky Bet League 2 Guide: Accrington Stanley

7 August 2014

All you need to know ahead of the visit to Accrington Stanley.

Ground Name: Crown Ground
Capacity: 5,057 (2,000 seated)
Address: Livingstone Road, Accrington, BB5 5BX
Tel Number: 0871 434 1968
Nickname: The Reds, Stanley
Home Kit Colour: Red

Away fans are mostly housed in the Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground, where up to 1,800 fans can be accommodated after this area was recently extended. If demand requires it then part of the Whinney Hill side can also be allocated. This small stand has a mixture of seating and terrace and has the benefit of some cover, unlike the Coppice Terrace which is open to the elements.


By car: Leave the M6 at Junction 29 and take the M65 towards Blackburn. Continue past Blackburn towards Accrington and leave the M65 at Junction 7. Then take the left hand exit at the roundabout onto the A6185 towards Clitheroe (this is in the opposite direction to Accrington). At the first set of traffic lights turn right onto the A678, towards Padiham, and then at the next traffic lights, turn right onto the A680 towards Accrington. After about half a mile along the A680 you will pass the Crown pub on your left. Take the next left into Livingstone Road and then an immediate left for the Club car park.

By train: Accrington railway station is about a mile away from the ground.  Leave the station and travel down the slope towards the large viaduct roundabout in the centre of town. Take the Milnshaw Lane exit at the opposite side of the roundabout alongside the Perry's Peugeot dealership. After approximately 100 metres this road then joins Whalley Road.  Bear left up the hill and follow Whalley Road for about a mile, passing the hospital, a set of traffic lights and then a mini roundabout.  Take the next right after the mini roundabout junction into Livingstone Road. The football club is approximately 100 metres on the left on Livingstone Road.


The car park is of a reasonable size and is free, however as you would expect it fills up pretty quickly. Otherwise street parking.

Thanks to for the details.
