Travel guide: Notts County

13 January 2017

With the local derby against Notts County only hours away, supporters can now read our in-depth travel guide ahead of the fixture at Meadow Lane (14 January, 1.00pm kick-off).


With a capacity of 19,588, Meadow Lane is one of the more traditional stadia in the EFL and is well known for being only 0.7 miles away from The City Ground, the home of Nottingham Forest.


For our contingent travelling via road, head north-east on Quarry Lane towards Portland Street and the A60. 

Continue on the A60 and progress onto Mansfield Road and then London Road. 

Then, after half-a-mile, turn left onto Cattle Market Road and you will see the destination.


A standard adult return ticket from Mansfield to Nottingham and back costs only £6.50. It takes around 35 minutes and the stadium is just a 15 minute walk from the station.

Train times for services leaving from Mansfield station and arriving at Nottingham on Saturday morning are as follows: 

8.06am - 8.44am
9.06am - 9.42am
9.37am - 10.15am
10.06am - 10.43am
10.37am - 11.15am
11.06am - 11.43am
11.37am - 12.15pm
12.06pm - 12.43pm

Return journeys from Nottingham to Mansfield will depart at the following times: 

3.26pm - 4.02pm
3.55pm - 4.34pm
4.26pm - 5.02pm
4.55pm - 5.39pm
5.26pm - 6.08pm
5.55pm - 6.40pm
6.55pm - 7.33pm

Please note, the last train from Nottingham to Mansfield departs at 11.05pm.


There is plenty of street parking within a walkable distance of Meadow Lane, while Toton Lane Park & Ride can be used and is totally free. 

Matchday parking is available for a small fee at the Old Cattle Market directly behind the away turnstiles, although spaces are expected to be very limited. 


It has been confirmed that Stags' fans will be made welcome in the Company Inn on the Waterfront. The venue is just a three-minute walk from the train station.


The two rivals last met in October 2016 and Stags secured their third successive win over the Magpies with a 3-1 victory. 

Striker Matt Green replaced Danny Rose in the 54th minute and immediately had an impact. 

Fellow striker Pat Hoban headed the ball down for him and Green swivelled and saw his deflected shot find the back of the net with his first touch. 

However, Notts got back on level terms in the 82nd minute when Alex Rodman’s deflected shot beat Scott Shearer in the Stags’ goal to set up a mouth-watering final few minutes. 

Left-back Mal Benning was bundled over by Matt Tootle in the 90th minute and super-sub Green stepped up and hammered the ball in to the top corner. 

Then, substitute Darius Henderson wrapped up the points with a goal in the 94th minute.


The exact distance from One Call Stadium to Meadow Lane is 15.2 miles via Mansfield Road, and it will take 42 minutes, approximately by car.
