Driveway on Heath Mount
What is nearby?
Private driveway opposite Elland Road football ground. Extremely handy parking for match days. Arrive and depart whenever it suits, to avoid traffic/car park queues.
Unfortunately traffic control have started blocking egress from Heath Mount at the end of football games for approx. 15 to 20 mins after the match ends. So, in order to leave early, you would have to leave the ground shortly before the game finishes.
Dropped a star because its a very tight gate to the driveway......otherwise its ideal parking for ER though you have to leave early to avoid the first 20 minutes after final whistle. when ER is blocked off from Heath Mount.
no problems at all
Very handy for Elland Road. Location is 50 yards from away end, so ideal for away fans. Owner very friendly. Road was closed after game to allow fans to disperse, so we had to wait 20 minutes before we got away. Not a big deal but worth knowing. Would use again.
Very close to the ground and no problem parking. Only thing I'd say is the drive layout means two cars are parked one behind the other so if you're the first to arrive you're then waiting for the other people to come back before you can leave (unlikely to be an issue though). However, what's more of an issue - and no fault of Steve's - is that after the match the entrance to Heath Mount is blocked-off for traffic management and hence you're sitting for 20 minutes or so before you can even get onto Elland Road. I don't really understand why the traffic management people do this - there can't be more than a dozen cars trying to get out of Heath Mount so it's hardly a big deal in the context of the total traffic around Elland Road on a match day. However, potentially it does make it slow getting away from the ground so just be aware!
Close to the football ground, very convenient
Very convenient and helpful friendly greeting when I arrived. Very secure as on a residential drive. Excellent. Will definitely use again.
