|What's Aggborough Stadium Like?|
|On one side is the new smart looking East Stand, opened in 2003. This single tiered, cantilevered stand, replaced a former terrace and has greatly improved the overall look of the ground. Perspex panels have been incorporated into the front of its roof allowing sunlight to reach the pitch. Behind this stand can be seen puffs of white smoke from the steam trains running to and from the station, which certainly gives the ground a bit of character. Part of the East Stand is given to away supporters. Opposite is the Reynolds Stand. This single tiered stand, built in 1994, is all seated and covered, with an executive area to its rear. Both ends are small covered terraces. The ground is shared with Worcester City FC.|
|What Is It Like For Away Supporters?|
fans are housed in the covered South Stand Terrace at
one end of the ground, where around 1,500 supporters
can be accommodated. In addition a number of seats are
also made available in the Bill Greaves East Stand,
where the facilities are good. Adam Hodson a visiting
Stockport County fan adds; 'I sat in the Bill Greaves
Stand which is a nice modern stand
with a decent amount of leg room'. The
food available at Aggborough is almost legendary;
superb home made soup (which is
almost a meal in itself) at
huge home made pies and cottage pies with gravy for £4. Be warned the latter will
probably take you most of the half time interval to
The ground generally has a good atmosphere, helped by the fact, that even a small number of supporters can make quite a noise from the covered terraces. I've always found Aggborough to be a pleasurable day out.
|Where To Drink?|
is a supporters club at the ground, which allows away
fans in, or behind the Reynolds Stand there is the
Harriers Arms, a Banks's pub. Otherwise I would
recommend a bar called the King & Castle located
inside the Severn Valley Railway Station
which is adjacent to Kidderminster mainline railway
station. This pub serves an excellent range of local
real ales including the locally
produced Bathams Bitter, plus a range of pub
snacks such as pork pies and filled rolls. Across the road
from station is another pub called the Railway Bell,
plus a good chippy called 'Captain Cod'.
Coming out of the railway station and passing the
Severn Valley Railway Station on the left than little
further down the hill on the same side is the recently
opened Weavers Real Ale House. As its name suggests
this small pub specialises in real ale and it serves
cider and wine too (but no lager or spirits). On my
recent visit it served a cracking pint!
There are also a number of pubs in the town centre including a Wetherspoons called the Penny Black. However it is a good 15-20 minute walk away from the ground and it is mostly going uphill on the way back!
|How To Get There By Car & Where To Park|
trick to finding the ground is to follow signs for the
'Severn Valley Railway' (lots of steam trains if you
are into that sort of thing!), which is well
signposted. The ground is just behind the station.
From Birmingham, Wolverhampton and North (M5):
Leave the M5 at Junction 3. Take the A456 towards Kidderminster. On entering the outskirts of Kidderminster, turn left at the traffic lights at the junction with the A449, by the Land Oak Public House. Turn right at the next lights and proceed towards the town centre, passing the Severn Valley Railway Station on your left. Turn left into Hoo Road which is just before the roundabout. The ground is up this road on the left.
From Worcester and South (M5)
Exit M5 at junction 6 (signposted A449) and follow towards Kidderminster (approximately 15 miles). At first roundabout, take third exit (signposted A449, Kidderminster & Wolverhampton), then take first turning on left before railway bridge. Go down Hoo Road, over railway bridge, and Aggborough Stadium is on the right hand side.
From South-East (M40 & M42)
Leave M5 at junction 4 (signposted A491 Stourbridge). After approximately 5 miles, turn left onto A456 and follow towards Kidderminster. At roundabout on Kidderminster Ring Road, take first exit (signposted A451 Stourport). At next roundabout, take first exit (signposted A448 Bromsgrove), then take first turning on right into Hoo Road for the ground..
There are two fair sized car parks at the ground, but it can sometimes be difficult to get away quickly after the game. It is worth noting that the car park behind the away terrace costs £5 for cars and £10 for mini buses, whilst the car park behind the opposite home end is free. Otherwise you can park at the Severn Valley Railway station for £3 and around to the ground.

|North (Terrace) Stand|
ground is walkable (10 minutes) from Kidderminster
railway station, which is served by trains from
Birmingham Snow Hill. Just
come straight out of the station and go past the
Severn Valley Railway station on your left. Go down
the hill and turn left into Hoo Road and the ground is
up this road on the left.
Jon Hall adds; 'A simpler route involves cutting through the old cattle market. In fact the ground can be seen from outside the front of the station. When leaving the train station head down Comberton Hill. Take the first left turn into Comberton Place (the empty Farmers pub is on the corner). Walk along Comberton Place, past the law courts on the left hand side, and head down an alley towards the ground. This alley brings you out at the bottom of the car park behind the home (north) terrace and near the Kidderminster Harriers Social and Supporters Club. The ground is clearly visible once you pass the law courts'.
