Change of ground for Kirkham and Wesham FC

There has been a change of venue for this game, it will not played in Kirkham but in Warton.


The new ground is now NOT in Kirkham it is in WARTON... which lies 3.8 milesfrom our old ground.

EXIT via Junction 3 M55 (signposted A585 Fleetwood/Kirkham). Up approach and turn left towards signs saying Kirkham.

In around 3/4 mile you will approach a roundabout. DO not take Kirkham signs from now on, but follow Wrea Green and Lytham St. Annes (2nd exit) B5259.

In around 1/4 mile you will go over main Preston/Blackpool railway bridge and drop down almost immediately to a small mini roundabout (pub on left called Kingfisher). Carry on straight over this and up to main roundabout(another 200 yards) at junction of main Preston/Blackpool A583. Go straight over roundabout and drive on into Wrea Green village.

At 2nd mini roundabout in the centre of the village (Church on right and School) take left turn into Bryning Lane, signposted on OThe GreenĀ¹ (small white signpost) to Warton (2miles).

The Green will now be on your right as you exit out of the village and in around 1.8 miles you will come to the Birley Arms Pub on your left. Drive past and turn immediately left into pub car park.

The new ground is behind the pub and park here. There should be signs up on the day and people will direct you.

Approximate mileage from motorway to the new ground is around 5 miles and will take around 10 minutes in a car to travel.

*ALTERNATIVE ROUTE* is via coastal road from Preston towards Lytham St. Annes(A584) and at junction of traffic lights with BAE Aerospace (airport on left) at Warton turn right into Church Lane and in 1/4 mile you will approach the Birley Arms Pub on your right. Turn right into car park before pub and park here..
