Defunct Grounds

A wonderful stroll through the archives of the Lancaster Guardian & Morecambe Visitor to discover where clubs played from the 1890s to 1970 and to find unexpected venues and on occasion interesting facts of why these grounds have been lost to the sporting scene.  At present in May 2015 there are at least 100 grounds in Lancaster, Morecambe and the surrounding villages that have been “lost” and over the coming months they will be unveiled.
