Away Ground Guide: Bury

23 June 2014

All the information you need ahead of our visit to Gigg Lane during 2014-15...

Ground Name: JD Stadium
Capacity: 11,640
Address: Gigg Lane, Bury, Lancashire, BL9
Tel Number: 0871 221 1885
Nickname: The Shakers
Home Kit Colour: White and Blue


Away fans are located in the Pro-Vision CCTC Stand at one end of the ground. Leg room is good and the stands are quite steep keeping the fans close to the action and there is good height between rows.


By Car: Leave the M66 at Junction 3. Take the left hand exit at the junction and follow this road until you come to the junction with the A56 Manchester Road. At this T-junction which has traffic lights, turn right towards Bury. You will pass the Swan & Cemetery pub on your left and then some playing fields. At the end of the playing fields just before the traffic lights and a couple of pubs, turn right into Gigg Lane for the ground. However please note that Gigg Lane is normally closed on match days and the ground itself is not easily seen from the A56. 

By Train: There is no railway station in Bury itself, so most fans travelling by train are likely to end up at one of the Manchester stations. Bury Metrolink is served by trams from Manchester Victoria & Piccadilly railway stations. Bury Metrolink Station is about a 10-15 minute walk from the ground.


Street parking is available, although beware of a residents only parking scheme in operation in the nearby streets, which operates on both matchdays end evenings, with wardens patrolling the area.

Thanks to for the details.
