Other Boozers and Food Outlets Worth a Visit
The Bootlegger, 3 Amersham Hill, High Wycombe, Bucks, HP13 6NQ, 01494 525457
Formerly the Flint Cottage, the bootlegger is a speciality beer and cider pub with over 200 available from around the world. An every changing range of 7 real ales are available on draught with many more in bottles. We can’t fault the drink in this place though it is more of a beer bar than a pub. If you prefer more of a traditional environment to drink then the Belle Vue might be the better bet.
The Hour Glass, 144 Chapel Lane, High Wycombe, Bucks, HP12 4BY
About a mile from Adams Park and the closest pub to the ground! Nowt special by all accounts, but relatively convenient if you’re looking for a drink close to the stadium.
The usual scran is available from the bait cabin in the away end of Adams Park.
How To Get There
Trains to High Wycombe go out of Marylebone station on Chiltern Railways. Groupsave 4 for 2 tickets are available so return fares should be in the region of a tenner each depending on numbers. As always if you would like to join the group train travel please email firstname.lastname@example.org
As branch members are likely to be heading into one of the pubs close to the station pre match we will most probably get taxis to Adams Park.
By Car & Where To Park
As the stadium is in the middle of nowhere it should be easy to drive to, unfortunately as it is down a dead end road it isn’t very easy to get away from. There is a good sized car park at the ground but be prepared to wait a while before you can get out of it.

What’s the Ground Like?
While Adams Park is by no means the only out of town football ground in the league there are few that have more of a middle of nowhere feel to it. While the ground is only 2.5 miles from the town centre it’s down a dead end road, past an industrial estate with views of rolling fields beyond. As modern builds go it’s not a bad ground with the impressive two tiered Frank Adams Stand running the length of the pitch dominating the stadium. The old main stand runs along the opposite side of the pitch and behind the goal at the Valley End is a standing area for home fans. Away fans are seated in the Hillbottom Road end which has capacity for around 2000. As part of the planning restriction imposed on The Adams Ground the total capacity cannot exceed 10,000. Therefore if one part of the ground is extended other areas have their capacity reduced in order to maintain the 10K limit. Wycombe ground share with egg chasing team Wasps so the pitch can take a bit of a battering over the course of a season.
When Have We Met Before?
Our last trip to Wycombe was in March 2010 and was a dire 0-0 affair with pretty much no interest or excitement at all. Overall we have met Wycombe 12 times, lost 5, drawn 4 and managed a mere 3 victories.
