Aftet the awful scenes witnessed around Cumbria over the last week, this one was an absolute no brainer. Funnily enough, Brunton Park was the first ever ground I visited on this blog, but it’s nice to have a daytime visit.
I went over the summer and it’s a beautiful ground, the perfect mix of old and new. One big new stand that’s not so new it’s unlovable, but the rest is very traditional and reminds me of places like Roker Park.
As for Brunton Park itself, prior to it suffering some extreme flooding there was plenty to see. It’s genuinely a great ground to get checked off the list, and well worth a visit. Wacky signs, easy to see inside, and random high shelves outside one of the stands. Brilliant.
For now though it’s worth suggesting if you have a few spare pounds, please consider donating some money to the Cumbria Flood Appeal. It’ll help make sure folks won’t have as much to stress about, during one of the most stressful times of the year. Honestly, I’ll even forgive you not buying my book if you stick a few quid in the pot. Cheers.
