What is access/parking like at the track?

From what I have gleaned from interweb, which isn't a lot and is football club biased the parking is on road in the housing estate and one has to leg it down a path between 2 houses and through a set of barrier offset type gates, presumably to keep the scrotes with mopeds and quads off the grounds.

Yes that's where sat nav and directions take you but I think you need to exit M65 at J 13 head north and then  after 200 yards turn right through a row of shops onto Wilton Street.

I'm due to be passing a couple of times over next few months so was going to check it out and get proper directions.

DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING OF VALUE WHERE IAN HAS BEEN LOOKING.

Righto Thumbs Up


I have subsequently found a comment that disabled parking is available next to the club house/changing, so there must be direct vehicular access, it's just elusive.

Use bird's eye view on Bing Maps, much much clearer. Approach via Wilton Street to the North West and drive under the M-way.

The Venue link for Nelson on the 2017 Events page explains thus:

  • Race officials, volunteers and if space available riders please park at car park C on the map, event HQ CSP club room, off Cravendale Ave. Nelson BB98SJ.
  • In the event that car park C becomes full  please use car park B via Barrowford Wilton Street access, BB9 8PU

Please park responsibly and do not upset our neighbours by blocking drives around the area
