|What's Underhill Stadium Like?|
|Underhill has recently
seen some much needed investment with the building
of a new South Stand at one end of the ground. The
stand which was opened in 2008, is covered and has
a capacity of 1,000 seated spectators. The
Main Stand situated on one side of the ground is
quite small and straddles the half way line, running
barely half of the pitch. This stand which was built in 1964, is
seated with a capacity of 800. On
the North side of the Main Stand is a small
terrace, whilst on the other side
is a small all seated Family Stand. Opposite is the East
Terrace. This covered terrace runs the full length
of the pitch and is given to away supporters. It has an unusual looking box like
structure on its roof, which includes a television
At one end is the North Terrace. This end is so small that it has a large mesh fence at the back of it, to prevent footballs hitting the houses that sit on the other side of Westcombe Drive. On one side (situated towards the East Terrace) is small temporary covered stand, which is given to away supporters. The most striking feature of the ground is the relatively new club office building which sits at one corner of the ground, beside the South Stand. Although the slope of the pitch is not as bad as it once was, it is still fairly noticeable, running down the length of the pitch from North to South.

The Club have received
permission to build a new stadium at the
Clubs' Hive training ground complex in Camrose
Road, Edgware, which is just
under six miles away from Underhill. Harrow
Council have granted a 10 year lease to Barnet
to play matches there. The move has also been
sanctioned by the Football

|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
|Away fans are mostly housed on one side of the covered East Terrace, towards the North End of the ground. This area accommodates around 1,000 supporters. If demand requires it then the open North Terrace can also be allocated, increasing the allocation to 1,500. In addition around 200 seats are made available in the small temporary stand located in the North East corner. Normally a relaxing and enjoyable day out, although when you view the slope of the pitch, you almost think that it must be an optical illusion, as it is at quite an angle. Food on offer inside the stadium includes; Cheeseburgers (£2.80), Burgers (£2.50). Hot Dogs (£2.50), Pukka Pies and Pasties, including Steak & Kidney, Chicken & Mushroom and Cheese & Onion (all £2.20), As a matter of interest you may hear the home fans singing that Beatles classic 'Twist & Shout' from time to time!|

|Jim Prentice informs me; 'there are a number of good pubs around Underhill. A favourite with away fans is The Old Red Lion, just behind the north entrance to Underhill. Situated up in the town at the top of Barnet Hill are the Misty Moon and the Kings Head, and down the bottom of the hill (under the London Underground bridge) are the Queen's Arms and The Weaver. Away fans are welcome in all of these pubs on the whole - Barnet fans are generally friendly and welcoming'. Steve Smith adds: 'if you come into New Barnet railway station, then opposite is a Wetherspoons pub called the Railway Bell, which has a good selection of beer'. There is a supporters club at the ground, but this is for home fans only.|

|Leave the M25 at J23. Take the A1081
towards Barnet. Follow this road for about three
miles. Continue towards Barnet as the road becomes
the A1000. The the ground is at the foot of Barnet
Hill near to the junction with Station Road (A110).
Street Parking or there is a car
park at High Barnet Underground Station
(£3), which is well signposted around the
Map Showing The Location Of The Underhill Stadium (at the bottom of this page).
|The nearest underground station is High
Barnet which is on the Northern Line. There is only
five minutes walk down Barnet Hill to the ground
(although it is a fair hike back up the hill after
the game!). Alternatively you can take a quicker
overground train to New Barnet railway station,
which is around fifteen minutes walk away from the
ground. This station is served by trains from London
Kings Cross and is a shorter journey time than the
tube, taking around 20 minutes
from Central London.
Anthony Hammond adds; 'Coming out of New Barnet station turn right and then left into Station Road. Walk up to the traffic lights opposite the Odeon Cinema and turn right onto Barnet Hill (A1000). After going under a railway bridge, you will be able to see the ground behind the Old Red Lion pub on your left. Alternatively you can get a bus from New Barnet Station; the 84, 384 or 107 buses run every 15 minutes or so from New Barnet to Underhill'.
