It is many years since I was here with the Belvoir Cricket Club on a beautiful, typically English summer's day.

My abiding memory is of the mountaineering course required to ascend to the Score Box set in the roof! Not an elegant ascent with short skirt, skimpy top and all male audience to contend with!

As I remember, it was an excellent game, played in good spirit by both teams and with a mid-innings tea worth descending to the tea room for.

One of the most picturesque grounds in the country I should imagine, within Burghley Park, the House adding an elegant backdrop.

With an original white and black beamed pavilion situated in the grounds of one of Englands premier stately homes, this is a fantastic cricket ground. When standing at the crease you are privy to a great view over the collyweston slated rooftops and the many spires of Stamford. A short dash through the adjacent wood and you're in the pub at the William Cecil. Marvellous!

The setting for this cricket club is beautiful, Burghley house in the distance and the churches of Stamford with the sun shining above them.
Having attended a number of years running it just gets better.
Cricket week is a must visit! Beer tent, BBQ, live band ..... Oh and lots of cricket.
Thanks to all involved in the club, keep up the hard work.

Take a seat on the boundary on what has to be one of the most charming places to watch cricket anywhere.
For any overseas visitors this has to be on their Stamford Bucket List.
It's so quintessentially English!
