Why ‘The Stutes’?

From the founding of Histon FC in 1904 until 1951 the club were known as Histon Institute FC. Histon Institute was the village’s Sports & Social Club which was made possible by donations from the Chivers Family. Although the Histon Institute is no more and the club changed its name over 50 years ago the origins of the club are still remembered in the club’s nickname, i.e.‘The Stutes’.

DIRECTIONS

Maps of Histon and Impington can be found here.

By Road:
The Glassworld Stadium is situated to the east of the B1049, just over half a mile north of Junction 32 of the A14, and as such is easily accessed from all directions.

From the East: take the A14 and exit at Junction 32 turning right onto the B1049.
From the West: take the A428 which becomes the A14 (at Junction 31) and exit at Junction 32 turning left onto the B1049.
From the South: take the M11 and leave at Junction 14 to take the A14 Eastbound (Newmarket, Ipswich) leave the A14 at Junction 32 turning left onto the B1049.
From the North-West (Huntingdon): take the A14 and leave at Junction 32 turning left onto the B1049.
From the North (e.g. the Fens): The A10 from Ely joins the A14 at Junction 33 and then approach from the East. The B1049 runs South from Wilburton through Cottenham and on to Histon. The ground is on the left of this road half a mile south of the traffic lights by Histon Village Green, just before the bridge over the old railway.

After leaving the A14 at Jn 32 the B1049 goes north, with the Holiday Inn on the right and then climbs to go over the old railway line with trees on both sides. The Glassworld Stadium is on the right hand side next to the recreation ground as the road descends the hill.

Car Parking:
Car Parking at the ground is for permit holders only. There is lots of street parking possible in the locality. See below for full details of the parking policy.

By Train:
Unfortunately Histon Station saw its last passengers back in 1970 when the Cambridge to St. Ives line ceased to carry passenger services.
Cambridge Station is about a 10 minute walk from the City Centre. The Citi 7 bus (see below) connects Histon/Impington with Cambridge Railway Station and runs every 10 minutes.

By Bus:
Cambridgeshire County Council provides information about all bus services in Cambridgeshire.
The Citi 7 service runs from Cambridge Railway Station to Histon & Impington via Cambridge City Centre.
The timetable can be found here (pdf): Citi 7 Timetable.
The best stops for the ground are BUPA Cambridge Lea Hospital (on New Road), or the Railway Vue Pub by Histon Station and then its a short walk along New Road to the ground.

PARKING POLICY

Histon Football Club board of Directors have agreed this parking policy to assist visitors in respect of where they are able to park whilst visiting the Glassworld Stadium. Due to the increased restrictions and enhanced safety measures that we are required to comply with we have had to reduce the number of spaces available within the stadium car park.

On match days the car park at the Glassworld Stadium is a closed / supervised area, this means that there is NO PARKING other than for designated vehicles and authorised Disabled persons.

All Directors, President Club members, Sponsors, Staff, Team Managers and First team players will have an authorised parking permit. These permits will be numbered, these numbers will relate to a parking space within a specified area in the ground. All permit holders shall park in their numbered space; if a vehicle is found to be continuously parked in another space their permit may be revoked.

Parking Permits

Parking permits are to be displayed in the vehicle of the person / s that they are issued to. Parking permits are strictly not transferable, this includes to partners vehicles and family members, any permit found to be in an unauthorised vehicle will have it removed and / or the issued person will be reported to the Club Secretary for the issue to be dealt with.

Disabled Access

Disabled visitors to the Glassworld Stadium must ensure that they have registered their intention to attend a specific match with Histon Football Club Disabled Liaison Officer two days prior to that match. This is imperative so as to be able to ensure a space is reserved.

Any disabled driver arriving at the stadium on a match day that has failed to register their request for parking will be refused entry to the car park.

Every effort will be made to assist with getting these persons directions to a location as near to the ground as possible.

Emergency Vehicles

Two spaces will be cross hatched for emergency vehicles to be located adjacent to the First-Aid room.

Restriction times

Car parking at the ground on match days will be until 1 hour prior to kick off. Persons arriving after this will need to find alternative parking (other than Directors who will be escorted to their space at walking pace behind a steward). This will ensure the safety of pedestrian spectators.

Exit from the car park will not be until 30 minutes after the final whistle to ensure the safety of pedestrian spectators.

At no point will vehicles be allowed to enter the car park on match day (between 1300hrs – 1730hrs) – (1730hrs – 2230hrs) to drop off persons or goods.

Visiting supporters’ coaches

No visiting supporters’ coaches will be allowed to off load their passengers at the ground, all supporters coaches must off load at the Railway Vue, and the coach will then park in either Villa Rd lay-by or at the junction of Cambridge Rd / Bridge Rd.

Post match all coach travelling supporters will return to the Railway Vue to be collected by their Coach.

Alternative Parking

There will be a map indicating additional parking areas within the village that have been agreed with local companies, we ask that you respect their facilities.

Your assistance in parking respectfully and safely in the village is requested by Histon Football Club.

PLEASE DO NOT OBSTRUCT ANY ENTRANCES TO THE BUPA HOSPITAL AS THIS MAY HINDER EMERGENCY VEHICLE ACCESS.
