The Conygar Bridge Meadow football ground is the most westerly of the Welsh Premier League grounds. It has in recent years seen some investment which has generally spruced up its appearance, as well as adding additional seating capacity. On one side is the Main Stand. This fair sized stand is the largest at the ground and is covered and all seated. It runs for around half the length of the pitch and sits astride the half way line, with flat standing areas on either flank. Unfortunately it does have a number of supporting pillars running across the front of the stand as well as the bases of two floodlight pylons on both sides, which could impeded your view. The team dugouts are located in front of this stand. Opposite are two small all seated and covered stands, that are identical in look and size. They are separated in the middle, by a taller enclosed structure that serves as a press box and a platform for a tv gantry. Both stands are on the small side, being only four rows of seating high. The Town End as it is known, is dominated by the white coloured buildings of the Club offices, changing rooms and Clubhouse. There is a flat standing area in front of these buildings, as well as a couple of steps of terracing. In one corner of the ground in-between the Town End and Main Stand is an odd looking structure. This small blue coloured box, with a glass frontage, must serve as a Directors or Corporate Guest facility.
The opposite North End is a small open terrace. Both ends behind each goal have a large area of netting erected right at the front of them to try and prevent balls bring kicked out of the ground. However their location is not great as spectators in this area have to view the game through the netting, giving almost a 'prison' feel of watching the game. There are a set of eight floodlight pylons at the ground, four of which run down each side of the pitch. The ground is overlooked in one corner by the nearby St Davids Church.
At the ground itself is the Bluebirds Clubhouse Bar which welcomes visiting supporters. Otherwise there doesn't appear to be any other pubs located nearby. The town centre though is only around a 15 minute walk away, where there are plenty of pubs to be found. Two of note on Quay Street, are a Wetherspoons pub called the William Owen and the CAMRA Good Beer Guide listed Bristol Trader.

From the East
Follow the A40 towards Haverfordwest. After passing the Haverfordwest Golf Club on your right you will reach the Scotchwell roundabout. Take the first exit towards the Town Centre (A487). After passing Haverfordwest Railway Station on your left, you will reach another roundabout where you take the second exit towards Fishguard (A40). At the next roundabout take the first exit onto the A487 towards St Davids. Then just past the Morrisons Store take the next right hand turn (there is a circle of stones on one side). At the bottom of this lane, after going around the right hand bend, you will reach the main Club entrance.
From The North
Follow the A40 towards Haverfordwest. On reaching the Withybush Roundabout take the third exit towards Haverfordwest (A4076). Go straight across at the next roundabout towards the Town Centre (A40) passing a Retail Park on your right. You will then reach a Morrisons Store on your right and at the next roundabout take the third exit onto the A487 towards St Davids. Then take the next right hand turn (where there is a circle of stones on one side). At the bottom of this lane (with the Morrisons Store now on your right) and after going around the right hand bend, you will reach the main Club entrance.
There is a car park at the ground that is free. However it is not suitable for coaches as there is a height restricted entrance to the Club and car park. Coaches and other vehicles can park on the lane leading up to the ground.
Haverfordwest Railway Station is located just under one mile away, or a 15 minute walk from the ground. It is served by trains from Cardiff Central and Milford Haven.
As you come out of the main station entrance turn left and walk down the station approach road onto the main road towards the town centre. You will pass an Aldi store on your right, and the Milford Arms on your left. Cross over in a safe place over to the other side of the road and at the roundabout turn right at the Jeep Garage onto Freemens Way. Just past the County Hotel (over on your left) take the footbridge over the road to the other side. On leaving the footbridge turn back on yourself (so that you are walking away from the County Hotel) following the footpath at the side of the road. At the next roundabout turn left towards St Davids, by cutting through the car park in front of the Wilkinsons Store. Then you will then need to cross over the road and take the next right hand turn (where there is a circle of stones on one corner). Continue along this road passing Morrisons on your right and then around the right hand bend and at the end you will reach the ground entrance. Be careful though walking along this road as there is no pavement.
