What's Edgeley Park Like?
At one end is the large Cheadle End Stand which towers over the rest of the stadium. This stand which was opened at the beginning of the 1995-96 season, is two tiered, covered and all seated. Opposite, is the Railway End, a former open terrace which was converted to a seating area in 2001. This end is given to away supporters and has a small electric scoreboard situated above it. Both sides are quite old looking stands, that are both covered and all seated. The Danny Bergara Main Stand (which is named after a former manager) is only about two thirds the length of the pitch and straddles the half way line. This stand dates back to the late 1930's. On the other side is the Popular Side Stand, a former covered terrace which is now all seated.

Depending on the size of the away support and the weather, then visiting fans are housed in the large uncovered Railway End, or part of the smaller but covered Popular Side.

Where To Drink?
There is a small Labour Club (C.I.U. Affiliated) right by the entrance to the Railway End, that allows visitors in, for a small entrance fee. It is a small club that could do with modernising, but I found it both comfortable & welcoming. Otherwise there are a number of pubs along a shopping area, across the main road from the away end. Probably the best is the Royal Oak just at the end of Castle Street. Very friendly, away supporters are welcomed and there's always a bit of good natured banter flying about. 

John Keane adds; 'away fans will get a warm welcome in the Sir Robert Peel half way up Castle Street. One pub to avoid is John Jo Greens'. Steve Johnson recommends 'The Armoury' a Robinsons pub situated by the roundabout at the top of Castle Street, is excellent for away fans. The Landlord is very friendly, the Robinsons beers are excellent (the pub is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide) and the home fans there are very welcoming'. Also CAMRA Good Beer Guide listed is the Olde Vic on Chatham Street. Whilst Vaughan Skirrey a visiting Sheffield Wednesday supporter recommends 'The Grapes'. As you come up the hill from the station, the pub is on the left at the top of Castle Street.

Adam Hodson adds; 'If you are near Edgeley Shopping Centre then I would recommend the Edgeley Priory, which is one of the best fish and chip chops in Stockport.'

Please note that alcohol is not available in the away end. If you chose to drink in Stockport town centre, it is worth looking out for a Robinsons pub, as the beer is excellent and is actually brewed in Stockport itself.

By Train
Stockport railway station is in walking distance of the ground (around half a mile). Come out of the station and turn left up Station Road, and continue up the hill towards the roundabout. Go straight over the roundabout and turn left into Caroline Street for the ground. Thanks to Andy Harris for the directions.

Mark White adds; 'Stockport station's entrance has recently been modernised, and now has a new main entrance that you are sign posted to from the platforms. This is on the opposite side of the station from the ground. If you find yourself in the ticket hall with a taxi rank in front of you, go back into the station through the subways under the platforms, then follow the directions above'.
