Adams Park History

Wycombe Wanderers moved to brand new facilities at Adams Park in 1990 after selling off the land containing their former stadium, Loakes Park, to the local health authority who used it expand Wycombe General Hospital.

Through this sale, the club were able to fully finance their new stadium and replace the rapidly deteriorating stands which were last  renovated in the 1970s.

Located within the green environs of the Sands Industrial Estate, Adams Park initially opened with a capacity of 6,000 for the 1990 – 1991 season with a fraction under 1,300 seats.

Contrary to what you might think Adams Park’s name is derived from a former captain and benefactor rather than the local area or road it is situated on. Frank Adams  helped purchase Wycombe Wanderer’s former club, Loakes Park, which directly financed the stadium when it was sold.

Coming up to nearly 25 years old, a few renovations have occurred in the short history of the stadium including the addition of crush barriers within the terraces in 1993 and a few years later in 1996, the conversion to all seater for three out of four stands.

The 10,000 capacity was reached for the first time in the club’s history in 2005 when the club played then Premier League Champions, Chelsea, in a pre-season friendly.

There has since been suggestions that Wycombe’s ground could be expanded to 12,000 but this would require the construction of a new road to alleviate the increased matchday congestion.

At the stadium there is the Scores Bar which is located within the main stand next to the reception and is suitable for both sets of fans, otherwise there aren’t many other drinking options around Adams Park as it is situated within an industrial estate.

Back towards the centre of town there are a few high-street chains such as Yate’s and O’Neill’s near to the station, as well as The Hour Glass which is typically the last stop before many fans get to Adams Park.

The Vere Suite serves warm food and allows free entry both sets of fans. Child friendly, the restaurant/bar area opens at 12.00pm for Saturday 3.00 pm kick-offs and around 5.30 pm for evening fixtures.

At the ground there is a “free” cash machine outside the bar which is always useful.

How to get to Adams Park

Where is Adams Park?

The home of Wycombe Wanderers FC is located within Sands Industrial Estate which is approximately 2.5 miles west of High Wycombe town centre.


Driving

The address for your satnav is:

  • Adams Park, Hillbottom Road, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire HP12 4HJ.

It is located on Sands Industrial Estate, however once you get into High Wycombe you should be able to follow those familiar brown football signs to the stadium.

Car Parks

Street parking is available in limited quantities around the vicinity of the ground with supporters advised that zealous traffic wardens patrol the area. Thus it’s advisable that you park as “correctly” as possible, respecting residential driveways and vehicles.

There are also some small parking facilities at the ground itself with Upper Tier parking in the official club car park costing £5, with the car park behind the JFC building on Hillbottom road also costing the same.

These two car parks become very congested on matchdays and it’s advised that you get there early on matchdays to ensure that you get a space.

Train - Public Transport

High Wycombe railway station is located on the other side of town approximately 2.8 miles east from the stadium.

The main train operator is Chiltern Railways, with services from London Marylebone, and Birmingham’s Snow Hill serving two ends of the country.

If you’re looking to walk to the ground the two and a half mile journey or so is manageable at around 50 minutes providing you allow yourself enough time but it certainly isn’t the most enjoyable of strolls.

A better option would undoubtedly be to catch the matchday bus service which departs outside the station at 13.05 and 14.05 for 3.00 pm kick-offs and at 17.50 and 18.50 for mid week evening matches.
