The ground is set into a hill side, so there is plenty of greenery on view around the stadium. Unlike most grounds in this league Bower Fold benefits by having two seated stands on either side of the pitch. On one side is the Main Stand. This tidy looking covered stand sits astride the half way line. There is a small terrace to one side, whilst the other is a club building. The stand is flanked on either side by two floodlight pylons, but these don't impede the view. Opposite is the newish looking Lord Tom Pendry Stand. This stand like the Main Stand is cantilevered i.e. there are no supporting pillars. It is raised above pitch level meaning that you need to climb a small set of steps to reach the seated area. Again the floodlight pylons are situated to either side. Both ends feature covered terracing.
There is a Social Club at the ground. Otherwise located next to the car park entrance is the Hare & Hounds pub.
There is nothing in the immediate vicinity of the ground apart from the Hare & Hounds pub. Stalybridge town centre looks to be around a 10-15 minute walk away, however this is all down hill, so it could be quite a hike back up the hill to the ground.
Leave the M60 at Junction 24 and take the M67 towards Sheffield. Leave the M67 at the end of the motorway at Junction 4. Take the A57 towards Sheffield. After about half a mile turn left onto the B6174 at the traffic lights towards Stalybridge. Then at the mini-roundabout bear left onto the A6018 towards Stalybridge. The ground is a couple of miles down this road on the left. The entrance is quite easy to miss so look out for the large red sign advertising the 'Fitness Experience at Stalybridge Celtic' just before the Hare & Hounds pub. There is a fair sized car park at the ground.
Stalybridge station is located a mile and a half away from the ground. It is served by trains from Manchester Victoria.

In a separate move there will be a £1.00 charge for car parking to be implemented from the start of the 2011-12 season.
