Directions, where to sup, what's the ground like??


The New Meadow (or ProStar stadium as it's now known) opened just over a year ago and holds just short of 10,000, with four seperate fairly cultured stands. Millers fans are housed behind the goal in the North stand, close to the action with a decent view. If you don't already have a ticket from Barbot Hall, you can pay on the gate at the stadium for an additional charge of £2 per price category but we advise to pre-purchase.

Prices are: Adults £16, Students & over 65's £11, ages 12-16 £9 and ages 11 & under £3.

Directions by road: *please note parking conditions*
Join the A5 at the end of the M54 and continue for about seven miles, you will reach a traffic island which jonis the A49. Bear left and continue along the A5 until the third exit onto the B4380 (Thieves Lane). Continue onwards into Oteley Road and the ground is on the left hand side further down.

There is a car park at the stadium which holds around 700 cars but you need a permit, which may cost you upto £7 and you need to be parked up by 1.30pm or you'll be refused entry.

There is limited street parking near the ground and in a nearby industrial park, otherwise you have to park over 2 miles from the ground and either walk or use the park and ride buses, a return journey will cost you £2.50 with buses running every 15 minutes from 12.30 to 2.30pm and then returning after the match.

By rail:
Shrewsbury Central (two miles from the ground) with connecting trains from Birmingham New Street and Crewe.

Ale houses:
Brooklands Hotel operates a park and walk scheme, you can leave the car for a charge of £5 and its around a five minute walk to the ground.

The Charles Darwin holds around 70 free spaces and is a ten minute walk in the oppostie direction down Oteley Road, with a chippy outside.

The stadium itself also serves beer and a selection of pies and other food before kick off, however please note alcohol is not available during half time.

MillersMAD wishes everyone a safe journey.
