On arrival at ground I had look around the outside before taking any photo's.
Thought the place was deserted at first(though there were cars in the car park).A gate was open so I went inside the ground and eventually found three friendly guys having a cup of tea in the social club,one of which was a Cambridge United supporter,I congratulated him and he commiserated with me.
Not a part of the world I've been to very often, so it's interesting to see those photo's Timbo. It certainly looks like a well maintained little ground. I would guess you had ideal weather for a boating holiday, and hope Cap'n Jasper and his crew enjoyed it.

Thank you for these pictures, Timbo. Not a ground that’s known to me. I’ve made a few trips to East Anglia but have long-accepted it’ll always remain “The Great Unexplored” when it comes to football. Soham, King’s Lynn, Great Yarmouth – plus the Football League grounds and Histon – is about it for me to date.
We’ve previously discussed that 1950s cup-tie between Ely City and Torquay United. I wrote of recalling a picture of “a few old-timers and pallets - or crates - being made into terracing”. No sign of that online at the time but - lo and behold! – thanks to Vince Taylor (of Groundtastic) posting on www.veooz.com here it is:
