Visiting Turf Moor
Turf Moor is one of the oldest football
grounds still in use in the United Kingdom.
Burnley Manchester Road is the nearest railway station. Walk down
Centenary Way and Turf Moor is clearly visible. At the roundabout, turn right down
Yorkshire Street and into Harry Potts Way. The ground is on the left.
By road, exit the M6 at Junction 29 and follow the M65 to junction 10;
then signs for 'Towneley Hall'.
