There is no parking for supporters at the ground itself, but there is a nearby private car park which charges �5. Otherwise it is a case of finding some street parking. Malcolm Dawson a visiting Sunderland supporter adds; 'I parked in the retail park (PC World, Currys, B&Q) behind the North Stand. I assumed that there would be unlimited free parking, but when I got back after the match I had a parking ticket for £50. Be warned!'
The ground can be seen from Mansfield railway station which is no more than ten minutes walk away. The station is on a local line and is served with trains from Nottingham. To get to the ground from the station; Leave the station and turn left along the dual carriageway, (away from the town centre), you should see a retail park on the right. Go straight ahead at the first set of traffic lights, along Portland Street and then right at the next lights and into Quarry Lane. The ground is a short distance down this road on the right hand side.
Martin Monk adds; 'for away fans using the trains take note that for mid-week matches the last train leaves from Mansfield - Nottingham at 9.45 PM and the last train leaves from Mansfield - Worksop at 9.38 PM, please check with your train operators as both of these times fall before a 7.45 KO match finishes. Away fans have been known to have been left stranded in Mansfield, and have struggled to get home'.

During the past few years and at a cost of 6.5m, Field Mill has been transformed
into a modern stadium, with the building of three new stands. Both ends, the
North Stand & Quarry Lane End plus the West Stand on one side of the pitch have
been re-developed. The ends are almost identical single tiered stands, each
accommodating just under 2,000 supporters. The latest addition to the ground is
the West Stand, opened in February 2001. This is a cantilevered two tiered
stand, with a capacity of 5,500. On the other side of the ground is the rather
small Bishop Street Stand, a covered seated stand that only runs half the length
of the pitch. This now looks rather dowdy alongside its new shiny neighbours and
normally remains closed for most games.
There are plans to re-develop the small remaining Bishop Street Stand, with a new 2,800 all seated stand, but as yet no formal time scales have been announced as to when this is likely to take place.
Last Season: 1st, Conference Premier League
Average Attendance: 2,758
A Fans View
To confuse matters, away fans are now housed in
the opposite end from last season. Away fans are now housed in the North Stand,
a move that has been unpopular with a number of home fans, as the North End of
the ground has been the traditional home end for many years. As you would expect
from a relatively new stand the views of the playing action and facilities are
pretty good. Around 1,800 supporters can be accommodated. I had a fairly
uneventful trip to Mansfield and did not encounter any problems. It seemed to be
a friendly place that was quite relaxed. However Alistair Wright a visiting
Bristol City supporter adds; 'I found the standard of stewarding at Field Mill
to be particularly poor and at times they seemed almost hostile towards the away
support'. A range of Shire Foods pies is available inside the ground including
the Chicken Balti Pie (£2.20).
Rob Ferguson adds' for those away fans arriving by coach, please note that buses should drop off at Portland Street and pick up at Portland Street at the end of the match.'
