Broadhalfpenny Down.....Lovely ground, lovely pub and just about as historic as you can get! The 'cradle of cricket' I think it's called?

What defines the best ground? My favourite ground doesnt have amazing facilities, but the pitch has something in it for the bowlers. As opposed to my home ground is fantastic, but is a bowlers graveyard

Depends really, doesn;t it, in that my five are favourites for different reasons - Vine Lane because it has such a lovely atmosphere and a really nice batting wicket, Bank for that bit more pace and bounce and the cream teas, Scarborough because I remember giving David Bairstow throwdowns on the outfield when I was about nine and have loved the place ever since, Hovingham because its lovely and there is something so "English" about taking tea in a Manor house, Bledlow because of the steam train and red kites....
