have to say, I think the best ground to play at is: Stowe school 1XI pitch, absolutely awesome

doesnt show it off fully, but Northamptonshire 2nd XI play there, and it is amazing


that reminds me of papplewick and linby a little

and the grounds i said above arent the prettiest of grounds but they were decent grounds for me personally except queens park which is really pretty and is derbshires out ground

I played at Old Brentwood's for 16 year's beautiful ground, sporting wicket. Though the best I have played on I must say is the ground at John Paul Getty's home in Buck's. The wicket is county standard, but the scenery around it is awesome, absolutely beautiful.

Long walk for a duck would be old brentwoods ground. Need to call a taxi from the pavilion to the square. But yes, a sporting wicket.
We have been drawn against Windsor in the conference cup, shame its at our ground as i would not mind playing with Windsor castle as a back drop

I think they shot a bollywood movie there it was called Patiala House, which starred D Gower, N Hussain and A Tudor,some of it shot at Stowe, looked beautiful.

Yep

Made my gf drive round to it when I went to Cadbury World, spotted it when going in and looked like a cracking ground. The pavilion was very old school!

If anybody has played at the Royal Hospital School, that is a lovely place to play cricket. Great pitch with a background to match!

It is an odd ground Windsor - the second and third squares are better than the main one!

Excellent teas mind!

Best ground I played at in England was Sidmouth, Brilliant ground right on the water.

Colwyn Bay CC Looking after a young Tom Maynard whilst his old man was plundering runs

Cholomendy CC  With its castle overlooking the ground

Neston CC always a good track and especially now the redevelopments have been completed and can sneak out for stunning ice creams from the nearby shop

like a lot of grounds that have good views especially of mountains trying to work out the names and where they are  as mountain hiking  are another of my hobbies

North Perrott. The ground was levelled by the Americans after the war so they could play baseball there. Lovely pavilion with balconies off of the changing rooms.
