Founded in 1889 by legendary cricketer W. G. Grace, the Bristol County Ground is a long-standing and charming cricket venue in South West England. Affectionately known as ‘Nevil Road’ thanks to the connecting road, the stadium is an integral part of the surrounding neighbourhood.
The ground is not considered to be beautiful, but the history surrounding it is palpable. From the moment you step through the Grace Gates, the character shines through, and you are standing where legends have shaped the game.
In 2013 the Bristol County Ground underwent a redevelopment which increased its permanent capacity to 8,000, and 17,500 for international fixtures, as well as a new pavilion and conference facilities. This investment ensured its continuing relevancy and ability to host international matches.
Bristol County Ground is, of course, home to Gloucester County Cricket Club, one of eighteen first-class county clubs within England and Wales, where they play in 3 different competitions: The Royal London One-Day Cup, The Vitality T20 Blast, and the Specsavers County Championship Division One.
Generally speaking, the grounds host at least one England International a year but also acts as a general sports centre serving the local community.
Set in the Ashley Down area of Bristol, Gloucestershire, Bristol County Ground is approximately 3.5 miles from the city centre.
