|What's Nethermoor Park Like?|
|The ground is a fairly
open one, with three sides being mostly open to
the elements. On one side are two small all seated
stands. Both are similar in
height and design. The first was built as a
replacement for the old Main Stand in 2009 and sits
astride the half way line. The second is a little
smaller in width and is situated towards the Railway
End. Oddly the stands have a gap between them in
which a floodlight pylon stands. Opposite a small
covered terrace, which again is located towards the
Railway End. This is a simple structure, with a few
supporting pillars running across the front of it.
On the other side is situated the club house.
In-between are the team dugouts placed at pitch
side. Both ends are small open standing areas, that
are mostly flat or just have one step. Beyond the
Railway End you get a nice view of the hills in the
distance, beyond the tree line. The ground is
completed by a set of eight small floodlights, four
of which run down each side of the ground.
|Where To Drink?|
a club house at the ground which admits away fans.
It has a wide selection of drinks available
including real ales. The bar facility is shared
with the neighbouring Cricket Club. A ten minute
walk from the ground along Otley Road (going
towards the centre of Guiseley) is Coopers. This
pub is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and
normally has eight real ales on tap.
|How To Get There And Where To Park|
the M62 at Junction 28 and take the A653 towards
Leeds. After passing the White Rose Shopping Centre on
your left, bear left where the road forks onto the
ring road (A6110). Continue on the A6110 passing
underneath the M621, following signs for Bradford
(A647). Continue following the ring road for another
eight miles, until you reach a roundabout that is the
junction with the A65. Take the first exit onto the
A65 towards Skipton. Continue on the A65 for four
miles and you will reach Nethermoor Park on the right.
There is no parking available to visiting supporters at the ground. There is a large free public car park adjacent to the ground on Netherfield Road. To find this then turn right off the A65 (if travelling from Leeds) at the Station Pub, at the traffic lights in the centre of Guiseley. Then turn left into Netherfield Road after crossing over the railway bridge and the car park is about a quarter of a mile on the left hand side. The ground is about a hundred yards away and can then be accessed via a footbpath and a pedestrian footbridge over the railway. Otherwise street parking.

Guiseley Railway Station is only a
five minute walk away from the ground. The station
is served by trains from Leeds, Bradford Forster
Square and Ilkley.
If you wish instead to walk into the centre of Guiseley first, then on coming out of the station turn left and then at the bottom of the Station approach road, turn right. Then turn right again at the crossroads with the Station pub on the right hand corner into Otley Road. Nethermoor Park is further down on the right hand side.
