Sheffield Wednesday: Club Profile
Have you ever really loved Boro’ if you haven’t spent a Valentine’s Day evening seeing us win at Hillsborough? Well, of course you have. Duh! It is, however, one of our more recent highlights as a League side; a 1-0 victory at their place complementing a 5-1 blitz indoors earlier on in the 2011-2 season.

Travel Information – Distance: 148 miles
You have the option of travelling north on the M1 and the A1 for this journey, although we're going with the M1 because it's slightly shorter and slightly quicker. Good enough reason, surely? Following the northbound M1, leave the motorway at Junction 34 for the A6178 towards Sheffield Meadowhall and Rotherham. Take the second exit at the roundabout for the centre of Sheffield.
Go straight over one roundabout and continue onto Attercliffe Common. Keep right at the fork and continue across the junction to pass the Etap Hotel on the left. After this, turn right at the next junction onto the A6102 Janson Street, continuing over three roundabouts for 3.5 miles. As you continue through a small area of woodland, the ground will appear directly in front of you.
Street parking is an option if you arrive in advance, while other possibilities include some unofficial car parks along the A61 that will demand a few quid for the pleasure. The A61 is the main road that runs perpendicular to the A6102 that you came in on. Your options are therefore limited to public transport, but taxis will no doubt be able to cover the distance in a matter of minutes.

We've had a look, and it's estimated that covering the distance between the train station and Hillsborough on foot would be a) foolish and b) lengthy. It is the best part of three miles and will be at least an hour to walk.
