This was very much a spontaneous visit as I was driving through Llandindrod Wells (try saying that when you’re sober), and I’m very much glad I did.
The town seemed big enough that there’d probably be a football ground and google seemed to back it up. I managed to park up at the neighbouring rugby club, but as the ground is entirely open it’s easy enough to get to.
There’s not much to it, but it’s easy to love. A sign warning that dogs aren’t allowed was probably my personal highlight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dogs prohibited sign like it in my life.
There’s a little covered stand as well, with wooden benches perched on concrete blocks. It’s basic but beautiful, exactly the sort of addition that is welcome on this blog.
On the opposite side is a wooden clubhouse and then what I’m assuming is a refreshment bar with a tiny bit of covered standing next to it. But due to a huge banner advertising a nearby fish bar, I did momentarily think this might be the world’s most peculiar chip shop.
Alas it wasn’t, but this is without doubt a brilliant little ground. Easy to walk around, plenty of little oddities and thus definitely worth the trip.
Please feel free to buy my book. But only if you want to.
