Wetherby Road.

This is another venue at which County outplayed supposedly superior opposition from the level above  last season, and with much of last terms team again lining up for the blues County supporters will be looking forward to their team competing well once more this time around.





We have had some good experiences where we have luxuriated in the excellence of the North Yorkshire catering on offer ( and it is usually very good indeed), but we have also suffered the other extreme where excessive reliance on segregation has spoilt the experience............
...............last season`s visit  to these parts was an altogether better experience and hedgegrower is hopeful of the same again as far as North Yorkshire hospitality is concerned, and a repeat of last season`s on the park fortunes to make for a good day out for the travelling spectators from Stockport !   









Sustenance!

There was no access to the bar at the ground  last time , and Thompson’s Tea Bar, of which I have waxed lyrical many times, was no more, but the replacement caterer was OK and kept busy by hungry County supporters.






County fans will be housed no doubt in the Wetherby Road Terrace

Nearest Real Ale pubs ;

The beer selection is a bit limited, and...be warned... this spot has struggled to cope with County numbers in the past.






0.6m   Woodlands Hotel  ,  110 Wetherby Road

Is the best location-wise.....but......



Helpful Note:.....
The Swan on the Stray is a short walk up the Skipton Road from the big island near the Empress. The Swan has 8 hand pumped cask ales on and real cider.
