Travel & Parking
Address: Badgers Hill, 48 Berkley Rd, Frome BA11 2EH, UK
By Road: Travelling from Rodden Road, turn right at the traffic lights (you will see The Vine Tree pub opposite) onto Berkley Road. Continue for some 300 yards and the ground will be on your right. The entrance to the car park is at the far end of the ground.
Car parking is literally inside/around the ground with places for approximately 60 cars. If you are a disabled driver, please contact the club and they will reserve you a space. There is a local school – Selby Academy just 200 metres away – which acts as an overflow car park.
Parking on Berkley Road is not possible due to double yellow lines, so the Academy is a far better bet. There is a housing estate around the opposite side of the main entrance but again with limitations.
By Rail: Frome Station is located around a mile away from the ground, and is about a 20-minute walk.
Ground Facilities & Away Pubs
For the away supporters, there is a covered, seated stand with approximately 250 bright red seats. These were installed several years ago for their days in the Southern League.
The Venue and Sports Bar clubhouse is a 7-day-a-week operation and opens from 12pm. There is also a very large function room with comfortable seating. Usual football food and usual lagers served plus Doombar as the token real ale.
The Vine Tree pub on Rodden Road is a handy alternative, with its close proximity to the ground. Early arrivals might like to visit the cobbled streets in the town centre and the plethora of independent pubs such as the Lamb & Fountain cider house.
