North Street, known for sponsorship reasons at the Impact Arena has been the home of Alfreton Town since their inception in 1959.
The stadium has a capacity is 3,600, of which 1,500 is seated.
On one side is the small Main Stand that runs for about two-thirds of the length of the pitch. It is comprised of three small structures, with a small covered seated stand at its centre, with a covered standing area the; “Tommie Bradley Terrace” on one side and another small seated area the; ‘Lottie Bradley Hospitality Area” on the other side. There are a number of supporting pillars running across the front of this side. The team dugouts are also located on this side of the pitch.
Opposite is a similar-looking covered all-seated stand called the Tom McRoy Stand, however, this is around twice the size in terms of length and has more rows of seats. It is unusual that there is no barrier at all between the pitch and the stand. One end of this stand, the Bentley Close End, is a small seated area that is open to the elements. It looks like that this end was a former terrace that has had seats bolted onto to it. Opposite is a small steep terrace, known as the ‘Tin End’. This has a small covered area at the back towards the centre. There is a noticeable slope to the pitch which runs down from this end to the other. The ground has a set of four modern floodlights.

By Road: Leave the M1 at junction 28 and take the A38 towards Derby. After around two miles leave the A38 and take the B600 towards Alfreton. At the top of the slip road on leaving the A38 turn right along the B600 towards Alfreton Town Centre. After around half a mile you will see a Garage on your right and a modern looking church on your left. Turn left just after the church into North Street. The ground is down the bottom of this street on the right. For the away turnstiles then fans should continue past North Street and then take the next third left into Alma Street. The away fans entrance is down on the left just before the park.
There is a small car park at the ground in North Street, otherwise there is plenty of street parking.
By Rail: Alfreton Railway Station is located just under three-quarters a mile away from the ground and is about a 15 minute walk, mainly uphill to the ground. It is served by trains from Nottingham and Chesterfield. Come out of the station entrance and at the main road turn right into Mansfield Road. Cross the road to the other side and take the second left into Prospect Street. At the bottom of this road turn right into Nottingham Road, then take the first left into North Street and the ground is down on the right. Thanks to Brian Scott for providing the directions.
Ground Facilities & Away Pubs
Away fans are mostly housed in the mostly open ‘Tin End’ terrace at one end of the ground. This end can accommodate around 1,200 supporters. In addition a small amount of seats are also made available in the covered seating area on one side of the pitch. This area though does have a number of supporting pillars that may impede your view. At the back of the open terrace there is a small covered area, which can provide some shelter but only for a relatively small number of fans, plus again there are a number of supporting pillars to contend with.
Located just outside the entrance to the ground is the Alfreton Town Supporters Club, which does admit away fans. Also nearby is the Victoria pub on Nottingham Road, which is only a few minutes walk away, going back up onto the main road. A little further along Nottingham Road going towards the town centre is Blueys Bar.
If you have a bit of time on your hands, then you may care to take the 15 minute walk into the town centre (back up to the main road from the ground and turn left). Of choice here is the Waggon and Horses on King Street, which is a Wetherspoons outlet.
