BY ROAD

A trip to the north west for the Grecians means from Exeter you need to take the M5 north before joining the M6 north before leaving for the A500 at Hanchurch. This will take you through Stoke-on-Trent then you need to take the third exit for the A34 on the major roundabout. Continue along this road for a while continuing over a series of roundabouts before joining the A536 which takes you all the way up towards the ground before you need to take a right turn onto Moss Lane where the ground is. According to Macclesfield Town’s website, There is ample road side parking in the immediate areas around the ground. The club asks supporters to be advised to check for double white and yellow lines. A very safe place to park is in the Lyme Green Retail Park, which is only about 300 yards south of the ground down the London Road or on the London Road itself.

BY RAIL

Trains from Exeter St David's take around four hours with a change of service at Birmingham New Street.

On arrival, Macclesfield Railway Station is just over a mile away from Moss Rose, which is around a 20 minute walk away. As you exit the station, take a left on to Sunderland Street. Continue along this road until you reach the traffic lights aby Park Green, and then take another left into Mill Lane. This road then becomes London Road, where you will see the stadium approaching on your right.

PUBS/FOOD

According to footballgroundguides.com there aren’t a great deal of pubs and food outlets around the stadium due to it being outside the centre of Macclesfield. The closest pub is the Golden Lion, which is just under a 10-minute walk from the away turnstiles. It serves real ale and on match days and there is food on offer. There are also a range of refreshments available from the stadium.
