The stadium was only half open for the match tonight - it was an EFL Trophy match with an attendance of under 1000. I think by now everyone knows that this ground is located at the end of an industrial estate - with only one road in and out (and the traffic issues that brings). The number 4 bus is supposed to stop near the ground, but for some reason the number 4 buses tonight were all cancelled. Uber it was from the bus station, and back to the train station. The kiosk did a fairly decent pie, mash and gravy for about £7.50. The view in the away stand was decent. The seat was decent, quite spacious and comfortable for a plastic seat. The backdrop of the trees (and the rolling Chiltern Hills beyond) obviously makes for a scenic and picturesque setting. Clearly with about 650 home fans there wasn’t much noise, but the home terrace end did try a bit, more towards the end. And of course the club does love to belt out High Wycombe’s very own legend, ‘Dusty Springfield’ before each half starts. Also the club announcer on the tannoy wished us well for the rest of the season, a nice touch. All in all, a solid 4 stars, a good experience.

Typical lower league ground. Just under 3 mile walk from station. A bit hilly should be able to do it in 45-50 minutes. There is a bus that runs about 12:30 ish £4 return bus number WW1. A word of warning don’t catch it in the way back to the station as it takes over an hour just to get to the bottom of the road. Walk down the road catch the No2 to bus station then it’s a 10 minute walk to station. Normal big eats in centre. Sainsbury’s next to bus station. Good view in the away end you can get wet if you’re sitting in the first 4 rows if it’s raining.

The place needs knocking down and re building. Can't believe this is still allowed in football league. Ground very dated. Toilets very small and dirty. Accessible toilets were flooded. The was a 45 minute wait to get out after game was ridiculous. (More like 90 mins) one road in and out so jam packed. Food was extortionate prices £12 for fish and chips £2 more if you want mushy peas, fot can buy 4 cans for that. Ripping fans off. The tea, coffee and hot chocolate I am sure was brewed in same urn they use to clean players socks, and didn't change the water. Stewards were nice though (but we took our own. Thanks Howard).

History (from Wikipedia)

Pre-construction[edit]

Wycombe Wanderers had sought to leave their home ground at Loakes Park since the 1960s as the site had been earmarked for the site of development of the adjacent Wycombe Hospital. The club were able to sell the land to the health authority, which almost solely funded the construction of Adams Park.[citation needed]

Opening[edit]

The ground is located in a valley at the end of the Sands Industrial Estate, surrounded by green hills on three sides. Whereas Wycombe's previous Loakes Park ground was very close to the town centre, Adams Park is two miles due west of High Wycombe and less easily accessible either by public or private transport.
The stadium was opened in time for the 1990–91 season, and had a capacity of 6,000 with 1,267 seats in the Main Stand. The ground was named Adams Park in honour of benefactor and former captain Frank Adams. Adams had bought the former ground Loakes Park for the club, whose sale financed the move to the stadium named after him.
[citation needed] The new stadium coincided with an upturn in the club's fortunes as, under manager Martin O'Neill, they won the FA Trophy at Wembley thanks to a 2–1 win over Kidderminster Harriers.
