local info for sunday's trip to bristol,from a City fan

Post by infoman » Fri Aug 24, 2018 8:00 pm

Last proper weekend of the summer holidays so

The M5 will grind to a snails pace from just south of the M5 at the M42 junction

Start your journey some thing like 06:00am,well it is a 13:30pm kick off

match was moved to sunday as they Rugby boys play friday night
or maybe stay the weekend at Weston Super Mare

Coming by road.
Do NOT USE M4/M32 route and don't try to negotiate the roads and streets of Bristol

YOU WILL GET LOST

If you are coming by road use M4/M5 southbound to junction 18(Avonmouth) then follow signs A4 Bristol airport
It looks the long way round but its quicker.
Parking is normally in the streets around the area as long as you are there by 11:30am please don't block drive ways or park on corners.
If you are coming by train the local trains to Parson street are not convenient on Sunday.

BUT AND A BIG BUT,could I request you get the train ticket issued to Parson street as it push's up the footfall at the station its the same price as bristol temple meads

Till Ashton gate haly comes on line,just curious why is there no rail station by the line as it pass's by your football ground
When you approach the ground from the winterstoke road direction I suggest you walk past wickes using the pavement
as the concourse area behind the big new stand gets very congested with bodies
UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE THE JOHN ATYEO STATUE and Wallace from Wallace and gromit serie
Split train tickets are available to Bristol from the London area and group save is also availble on GWR trains,
but not cross country trains
If there are at least three of you get a taxi from the station to the ground
Make sure the taxi driver drops you in the Ashton Road end as it a very long walk round from the other end
or use the brown buses from the bottom of the incline of the station at Bristol Temple Meads
Casualty and Holby City were filmed in the City don't ask me about either of the programmes cos I think their both rubbish
The young ones was also filmed in the BS7 area of the City(actually its Bishopston)
Finally the block of flats on the left behind the dolman stand side as you are in the away end is "the" block of flats in "fools and horses"
If your into your "STREET ART" there is loads to see in the Ashton area as we have just celebrated the upfest in BS3
Bring your camera and turn up early if you want to take any photo's
Pubs possibly best one are in the cumberland road basin area novia scotia pump house and the cottage.
Leave your car there and walk to the ground
Buy your match day programme before you enter the away end.
BBC Radio station is radio Bristol which has frequencies and 94:9 and DAB and 95:5.

In 2015/16 957 blackburn fans visited Ashton Gate

in 2016/17 556 blackburn fans visited Ashton Gate

A final reminder that there has been no pay on the day for away fans

I don't that will be change,so please buy your tickets in advance

Can you please circulate to other Blackburn rovers forums and message boards

as well as other Blackburn rovers followers

If you want any further local info,don't be afraid to ask.
