At motorway roundabout follow "Barnsley FC" signs into Dodworth
Road. In 1/4 mile, turn left at the traffic lights into Pogmoor Road. In approximately
1 mile (hospital on the left) turn right at the traffic lights into Gawber
Road and in 1/3 mile follow road round sharp bend into Victoria Road and continue
to traffic lights. Continue straight on at traffic lights into Old Mill Lane
travelling down hill for 1/3 mile to traffic lights. Continue straight on
at the next set lights (100 yards) taking the right hand lane. Follow signs
"Pontefract A628" turning right at B&Q roundabout (McDonalds/Asda
on left) into Harborough Hill Road. Travel uphill and in approximately 1/2
mile at the top of the hill branch left (sign posted Pontefract A628) then
immediately left into Queens Road (sign posted Metrodome/football visitors).
The visitors car park is at the top of Queens Road on the right hand side.
From Railway Station (Barnsley Interchange):
The station is 0.5 miles from the ground and is an easy walk (see map).
The bus station is right by the railway station and, therefore, an easy walk.
However, services down Pontefract Road are frequent and nos. 36a, 37b, 38a,
38b, 117, 211, 245, 246, 247 and 328 will all get you there.
Barnsley, like all football clubs, has a small
minority of trouble makers who pop up from time to time. This is usually for
the high-profile games against rivals Leeds or either of the Sheffield teams.
Avoiding the Town Centre on these occasions is definitely a good idea. If
you do need to go through the Town Centre then avoid displaying your colours.
