Being one of the highest first class grounds in the country, at 283 metres (920 ft) above sea level and with 2.42 hectares (6 acres) of fields, the grounds have been well maintained by long serving groundsmen over the years:- 

  • Alf Davies of Crickhowell (1919-55)
  • Bill Dodd of Darwen, Lancs (1960-87)
  • Wayne Nash (1987-89)
  • Phil Williams (1989-1997)


Wayne and Phil, both from Ebbw Vale went on to Ninian Park, home of Cardiff city F.C as Stadium Manager and Head Groundsman respectively. They helped in the planning of the Cardiff city Stadium which has been the home of the football club since 2009.

Glyn Dobbs (1989) and Ivor Parry, Local Authority Employees have maintained the ground to the present day.
