VENUE:
Craven ParkCraven Park, now the J F Hornby Stadium, was built in 1931, largely as a result of the efforts of supporters of Barrow RLFC, 500 of whom volunteered to construct the ground. The total cost of the building project came to £7,500 which was an unbelievable figure in those days.

The stadium was named after Commander G. W. Craven, a local war hero, who had started the appeal fund with a donation of £500. It should not be confused with Craven Park, or Old Craven Park in Hull, other rugby league venues.

For the visit of Wigan in the 2010 Challenge Cup improvements were made and the capacity is now 7,600 (up from 6,500).

WHERE TO DRINK:
The Raiders Bar is open on match days where the usual alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) drinks are available for purchase.

Outside the Raiders Bar there is a catering stall, where you can purchase a selection of hot drinks and foods, burgers, pies, hotdogs, etc.

There is also a shop near to the Willie Horne Stand which sells a selection of drinks, sweets and confectionary and to the right hand side of the Willie Horne Stand there is another catering venue selling hot and cold drinks and hot and cold snacks and confectionary.

WHERE TO PARK:
The Raiders have no parking at the ground but there is plenty of street parking nearby subject to parking regulations and also by the main entrance there is parking available in the grounds of the old factory.

Behind Craven Park is a large retail park with plenty of parking, although you should be wary of parking regulations.
