Braintree Town Meeting Points and Directions

Chester Exiles: Meeting point for Braintree match

Chester play Braintree on Saturday ( October 19 ), and here are the match details for all fans planning to attend:

Meeting Place:
It is suggested that fans initially meet at the Picture Palace, a Wetherspoon pub which is close to the train station and around a 20 minute walk from the ground
Then move onto the Orange Tree which is close to the ground

Ground Address:
Cressing Road Stadium, Braintree, Essex CM7 3RD 

Braintree station is situated just under a mile away from the ground. It is served by trains from London Liverpool Street. Exit the station and turn right along the Station Approach. Cross Rose Hill at the pedestrian crossing into Railway Road. Turn right at the traffic lights into the wondrously named Trinovantian Way. This becomes Manor Street and then Lakes Road. After the 'Sportsmans' Snooker Club turn left into Chapel Hill. At triangular junction bear right into Cressing Road and then turn right into Clockhouse Way. Soon after right angled bend there is an unmarked road to the right, ground is at the end of this cul de sac. It takes around 20 minutes to walk.

Car :

Leave the M11 at junction 8 and take the A120 towards Colchester. Follow the A120 for 16 miles until you reach the 'Galley's Corner' roundabout (with McDonalds on your right). Take the first exit into Cressing Road. After three quarters of a mile turn left into Clockhouse Way (signposted Braintree Town FC) and then first left again for the ground. There is a small car park at the ground which costs £2, otherwise street parking.
