County Cricket Grounds
The first-class county grounds are well described in "The Homes of Cricket" with histories, descriptions and
black-and-white and colour photos (Plumptre ISBN 0-356-15671-0), and "The Wisden Guide to Cricket Grounds", with brief histories, descriptions,
travel details and ground plans (Powell ISBN 0-090173830-X)
and "Cricket Grounds from the Air"(Cooper & Lightman ISBN 1-84746-269-3),
but for encylopediac details down to the variety of beer served and the availability of childrens' bouncy castles you need "The Offical ECB Guide to Cricket Grounds" (Powell ISBN 0-75093084-5)
See also ground descriptions on Cricinfo For those interested in the histories of cricket grounds there is also a series of pamphlets published by the Association of Cricket Statisticians in the 1980's titled 'The Cricket grounds of .....'
More pictures will be added to these pages as I travel to more grounds.
This is not an exhaustive list of all grounds where cricket has ever been played - see the Cricinfo site or "Britains Lost Cricket Grounds" (Arnot ISBN 978-1-84513-591-1) - but of grounds where county cricket is currently being played or has been played recently. Please inform me of any omissions or inaccuracies.
