From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lansdown Cricket Club Ground is a name which has been used to describe two cricket grounds in Bath, Somerset. From 1825 until 1850, it was the name given to Lansdown Cricket Club's ground 'Cricket Down'. In 1850, Lansdown moved to Sydenham Field, also in Bath. In 1869 the club moved again, and the name was used for their 'Combe Park' ground, where they have played ever since.



Cricket Down ground

Used by Lansdown Cricket Club until 1850,[1] this ground also hosted two first-class cricket matches in 1844 and 1845.[2]


Sydenham Field

Although not referred to as 'Lansdown Cricket Club Ground', Sydenham Field was used by Lansdown Cricket Club from 1850 until 1869,[3] Sydenham Field was also used by both the 'Gentlemen of Gloucestershire' and the 'Gentlemen of Somerset' for a small number of home fixtures.[4]

Combe Park ground

Following their 1869 move from Sydenham Field, the club have played at Combe Park ever since.[5] Somerset County Cricket Club played the only first-class match on the ground, hosting Hampshire in 1884.[6] Somerset have also used the ground for Second XI fixtures in 1959 and 1990, and for a number of Minor Counties and Under-25 fixtures.
