The main stand at the Avenue Stadium, home of Dr Martens club, Dorchester Town

Take the M4 to Junction 4B, come off and join the M25 (signposted Gatwick M23). Keep left to join M25 and travel to Junction 12 to link up with the M3 (signposted Basingstoke).

At junction 14, take right-hand land to link up with the M27 (signposted, The West M27). At junction 1, the motorway becomes the A31. Remain on this road for approximately 25 miles, until the Bere Regus roundabout.

Then take the A35 Tolpuddle Bypass into Dorchester. After the dual carriageway of the bypass, you will come to another roundabout, named Kingston Maurward.

Continue straight on along the A35 and turn right at the next roundabout, and right again into the Tesco complex. At the roundabout in the complex, turn right again past the entrance to the petrol station and take the left hand fork to the parking area.

Terrace entrances to the ground are situated adjacent to this parking area, whilst the bar and stand entrances are on the opposite side of the stadium.
