    Didn't Dulwich Hamlet once play on a ground off Woodwarde Road

    Contemporary press reports suggest that it was a mud bath rather than a pitch for much of the season. I have vague memories of a Junior Cup opponent, possibly Wimbledon, appealing for a replay on the basis the pitch was hopelessly unfit for playing football on.

    Yes they did and 19 Woodwarde Road was also the family home of Reg Anderson, one of our finest players who was sadly killed in 1942 whilst serving with Bomber Command.

    Woodwarde Road is uphill all the way N-S. must have been hilarious.

    That would be 1991, not 1993. Last match was May 1991.

    As an aside, the first league game back was October 3rd 1993. Highest crowd of the season - 752 vs Hendon.

    so are we basically one pitch to the West or left of this ??

    We're currently more or less on the same site, with the pitch slightly realigned to the west and south. The photograph was obviously taken from the top of one of the floodlight pylons, which were installed in 1964. The other one at the same end was a replacement during the 1980's, doubling as a mast for mobile phone networks, and is still there serving that purpose.

    If I’m correct the ground moved closer to St. Francis Street and built over the access road and the car park behind on the stand. You can still see some of the old markings painted on the brick wall along the footpath.

    Yes, the Toilets Opposite stand must be roughly where the old upstairs bar was around the back of the old Main Stand.

    Barren indeed. Is that Tuscany or the Anzio beachhead ?
