Sedgley Park R.U.F.C. (1955 – present)

Swinton R.L.F.C. (2003–10)

Park Lane is a rugby stadium in Whitefield near Bury, Greater Manchester, England. It is the home of Sedgley Park R.U.F.C. and, from 2003–10 Swinton rugby league club.

Sedgley Park R.U.F.C. moved to Park Lane in 1955. A large, two-storey clubhouse was completed in 1982 and was extended in the 1990s. Also in the 1990s the club turned its two pitches into one and purchased a field, just across the road, to provide three more much needed pitches.
