Re: Cricket grounds in historic Cheshire[edit]

Hi again AssociateAffiliate,

As you requested last month, I checked out the list of cricket grounds in the historic county of Cheshire that were still missing images.

I identified the articles for the following five grounds as currently having no images:-

  • Booth Park Cricket Ground, Toft, Cheshire.
  • Chester Boughton Hall Cricket Club, Boughton, Chester
  • Macclesfield Cricket Club Ground, Macclesfield, Cheshire
  • Moss Lane cricket ground in Alderley Edge, Cheshire.
  • South Downs Road Cricket Ground, Bowdon, Greater Manchester

Today, I visited all five of the above grounds and have taken a few photos of each ground in that list. Sadly, the weather didn't really co-operate, so some of the photos I have are a little bit dull, but at least we have some images of them now.

I've just got back home now after this "cricket-ground visiting marathon", so I probably won't have time to upload the images tonight. However as I'm off work this week, I will endeavour to upload the images to Commons sometime this later week. I will make it a priority to upload these cricket ground images before I upload any other images. Also, I will write on your talk page again later this week after I have uploaded the images. At Boughton, I was allowed into the VIP balcony of the pavilion, so managed to get some shots from a higher angle there, which was nice.

Many thanks, really appreciate it. AssociateAffiliate (talk) 22:00, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

No problem, I really enjoyed visiting the various grounds and taking the photos. Thanks very much for the barnstar, much appreciated! I have now uploaded the photos to Commons. You will find them all at the following categories:-

Also note, I have added the "interwiki links" such that when viewing the commons caterories, if you click on "In Wikipedia" -> "English" on the left of the page, it will then take you to the English Wikipedia article corresponding to the images.

I notice there is still one Cheshire article missing photos, this is Ellerman Lines Cricket Ground, Hoylake. I see it is listed as a "defunct ground". I'm pretty sure the ground doesn't exist any more. However, I do frequent a local history forum. Later this week, I will post on there and enquire about the location of this ground. If it's possible at all to locate exactly where this was, then I will visit the former site. I'll let you know if I get anywhere with that line of inquiry.
