Day 3 – Ground no. 22: The County Ground, Swindon Town
A proper old school ground! The County Ground pub right in front of the ground is a must! The four stands are oh so different, adding character to the ground. The floodlight pylon going up through the roof of The Town End is brillant. With a cricket ground to one side and terraced streets to the others, it is very much a community stadium. And then there is the magic roundabout – formed by five small ones! Surreal! So surreal that my camera broke down and I failed to capture the magic of a floodlit match there.
