Getting there
By Car: (approx 149 miles from HW)
The journey to Lincoln from High Wycombe is a bit of a cross-country affair. A reasonably safe route, in terms of avoiding potential traffic congestion, is to travel east on the M40 and then cut across to join the M1 northbound via the A43. Leave the M1 at junction 21A and continue on the A46 (signposted Leicester and Newark). After approx 48 miles on the A46 join the A1434 (s/p Lincoln South). Following 'Lincoln and City Centre' signs for about 4 miles then get into inside lane (s/p City Centre, Worksop A57) and go straight on at roundabout into the High Street. After 0.5 miles get in outside lane, and go straight on at lights (s/p City Centre, Worksop A57). Turn right after around 200 yards into Scorer Street. Sincil Bank is first turning on the right.
Check for specific or more detailed directions.
Train: Lincoln Central is the nearest station and approx 15 minutes walk to the ground.
