Grounds - Eastfield 1920-1926

 
 
 

This was a temporary measure when the club shared the ground owned by Westbury Cricket Club while they looked for a more permanent ground.

An announcement was made on 17th August 1920 that a ground had been obtained at Eastfield, Westbury-on-Trym. The entrance to the ground was in Henleaze Road, about 100 yards beyond the Henleaze Congregational Church.

The Opening fixture was on 9th October 1920 v Bristol Grammar School.
