If you’re going down in the car, you’re best-off heading down the A19 and joining onto the A1 before turning onto the M1. Then turning off onto the A628 at Barnsley for a long and scenic drive into Buxton. Should take you 3hrs – 3hrs 30 mins depending on how many piss stops you have and how much you pay attention to speed limit. Mind if ya cars a bit shit you might struggle going up the hills.
Address – Buxton FC, Silverlands, Buxton SK17 6QH
For the train.. ha, good luck. Open return you’re looking at about £100, 4 hours from Newcastle central with 2 change overs with a 10 min walk to the ground.
As for the Green Army bus we still have about 10 seats left. You know what do if you want on.
Thankfully there’s a lot of them! Last time we went down to The Wye Bridge House (a Spoons yes but canny for a Spoons) where hopefully the bus will be landing for about 12pm (traffic depending). A few other pubs like The Swan, Lubens, The Old Sun Inn and The Royal Oak Inn all get canny reviews as well. Most of whom do bait as well.
As for the clubhouse at the ground that looks canny as well. Looks to be open from about 1pm and serves the usual bait you’d expect.
Bit pricier than most grounds in the National League North.
Adults – £15
Concession* – £10
16–21-year-old – £5
5–15-year-old – £2
*Unfortunately, they don’t actually clarify what is, presumably student/OAP

I suspect a few of us will trimming the beards and trying to get in for a fiver.
Other useless info
No segregation in place or out daft like that. Last time we went down in 2015 (I think?) the locals were canny.
No Blyth Live on, so me and the lads might do a twitter space thing If we get pissed enough.
