Although I have mixed feelings about this ground, there’s absolutely no denying that it’s an absolute doozy that is worth visiting. But I’ll have to tread lightly.
Because as much as the ground is easy to find and navigate round and get some photographs, there’s a sign in the dugouts advising that they will take legal action if they find anyone unauthorised on their premises.
And although I’m sure that applies more to kids playing football on the pitch or local vandals, I couldn’t possibly advocate trying.
For the record, what is there is great. The dugouts are certainly unusual, as is the one stand on the opposite side of the pitch, with another dugout just beside that as well.
There’s not much else to it, but it’s the sort of hidden gem I absolutely love stumbling across and I was delighted to find it. So I’d recommend a visit, but a very careful one at that!
Woodhorn Lane Update
We’re back to the usual view this week but not a lot of change to report really. I’ve noticed they’ve boarded a couple of doors up – hopefully nothing to do with the super view we had last week. Also, a big gap for a corner window at the back of the stand looks quite promising. Oh and they’ve started to tarmac the new car park. So quite a bit really. But it doesn’t seem like much.
Book? What book? Oh, that book! Yeah, click here for that.
