I previously wrote a blog post about the history of the Fartown Grounds at Huddersfield in January 2017, recently I started to sort through all the pictures I have taken over the years with the intention of sharing them here and on Clickasnap, this due to my decision to no longer use Flickr as a source of sharing my images. Todays set I have reworked is from the number I took at Fartown in June 2015. They can all be seen below or on Clickasnap where they are full size and Un-watermarked. To learn more about the history of the Fartown grounds please take a moment to view my previous post.

Despite its historical significance to rugby league and cricket the grounds seem to be a shadow of their former selves, feeling a little unloved and neglected on the whole, the main playing surface looked like a fantastic spot to play the greatest game.
Thanks for looking and fell free to share, all the pictures remain the copyright of Colin Green.
