Parked in the lovely town centre and walked about 5 minutes to the ground. Beautiful views from the ground in a well maintained, friendly stadium. Food was decent, the staff were thoroughly helpful and welcoming, as were the fans. Nice little club house. Facilities were decent, a great day out.

Great day out at MTFC. Decent ground, spacious bar area, decent food and beer. Friendly enough people, reasonable entry fee (£10) and topped of with a good game of football, second half, after a slow first half. The town itself is a nice place to visit.

Good little ground close to the town centre. Excellent large social club with local real ale. Good steak pies. No parking, but good public transport to Matlock. Good view of Riber Castle on the hill.

Went August 2021 for Matlock v Basford game. Great none-league football ground, decent crowd, 500+ and pleasant bunch of fans. Can't beat none-league footy.

History (from Wikipedia)


The club originally played at Hall Leys, before moving to Causeway Lane, which is shared with the local cricket club, with temporary railing installed on one side of the pitch at the end of the cricket season.[10] A wooden stand was built on one side of the pitch in 1920 and was later named the Cyril Harrison Stand.[10] Another wooden stand was built on the other side of the pitch in 1959, with seats installed in the late 1960s.[10]

Floodlights were erected in 1970 and a new terrace installed next to one of the stands prior to the FA Cup first round match against Blackburn in 1974, which attracted a then-record attendance of 5,123.[9] More seats were installed in 1975 and that year saw a new record attendance of 5,123 set for an FA Trophy semi-final match against Burton Albion.[10] A covered terrace was built at the Town End of the ground in the 1980s.[10]
