Travel

 

 

Rail: Trains from Birmingham Snow Hill (a few minutes’ walk from New Street) to Stratford Upon Avon call at Yardley Wood station, and this is about 15 minutes walk away.

Trains from Worcester to Stratford upon Avon also call at Yardley Wood

 

Road

All road users are advised to approach from the South of    Birmingham, via the M42 and motorway network:

From the M42 at Junction 3, head north on the A435 towards Birmingham. After 1.5 miles, go across roundabout at Becketts Farm, continuing on the   A435.

After 2.5 miles at roundabout (large Sainsbury’s opposite) take 3rd exit (signposted to Warstock, Shirley and Solihull) into Maypole Lane. After 1 mile turn left opposite Peterbrook Primary School into Yardley   Wood Road

Continue straight across a large roundabout (3rd exit).Continue past the bus garage on left. Continue across a double-mini-roundabout complex. After 0.5 miles, cross two pedestrian crossings, and    immediately turn left onto Billesley Common.

From the North-West: proceed  anti-clockwise around the motorway network (i.e. M6,   M5 ) and then M42 to Junction 3.

From the North-East: Go down the M1 to the M42 turn-off at Nottingham. Then M42 south-west to Junction 3

From London and the South-East: M40 to M42, then south-west to Junction 3. (Or M1 to M6 then    M42 SW to Junction 3)

From the South-West:M5 and up the M42 to Junction 3

 

Buses: Buses 2 and 12 from the city centre both stop right outside the entrance to the ground.

The Outer Circle Route (No.11) stops about 100 yards from the common, at the Billesley fire station. The A6 and 69 also come close, stopping   just past the Yardley Wood Road, about 10 minutes walk away.

The frequent No. 50 service along Alcester Road, through   Moseley and Kings Heath, is also within a few   minutes’ walk

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks.

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
