How to get there

When planning a trip here, don’t try and find Forest Green on your map, look up Nailsworth, south of Stroud in Gloucestershire.

The best way to approach is from the M5 and exit at junction 13 and head for Stroud on the A419. At Stroud turn onto the A46 towards Nailsworth. This will bring you into the centre of the town when you reach the Information Centre take the first right at the mini roundabout into Spring Hill, which goes up a steep hill sign posted Forest Green.

The Lawn is at the top of this hill. Turn left at the roundabout at the 'summit' into the stadium entrance. There is no parking available in the club car park for visiting fans unless you are a blue badge holder who has pre-booked a space. A short distance away down Nympsfield Road is Nailsworth Primary School which offers parking at £5 per car. Otherwise, there is plenty of on-street parking in the area, although please be considerate to local residents.

Park & Ride

The Club operates a Park & Ride scheme from the premises of Renishaw plc, which are located on the main A46 Stroud Road (GL5 5EY). There are 200 spaces for cars and cost of £5 per vehicle. Buses up to the ground commence up to three hours before kick off and return after the match has ended.

By Train

There is no railway station in Nailsworth itself. The nearest is in Stroud which is five miles away.

Previous Meetings

The reverse fixture between the two sides saw Town win 1-0 at Blundell Park back in December.

A Mitch Rose goal was the difference that day as the Mariners finished 2017 with a victory, whilst they were also reduced to ten men when received his marching orders..

The two sides have met 14 times over the years and the Mariners have an impressive record, winning nine of those encounters and drawing three, with Forest Green coming out on top on two occasions.
