Nice ground. Plenty of space on all 4 sides. Good bar/lounge and toilet facilities. Warning very expensive bar prices....£7 pounds a pint!. Have been to every Premier league club and none were this expensive lol. Attended as a step 6/tier 10 non league non fixture supporter. (Clapton ccfc). Nice club....shame about the pricing.
Modern 3g pitch with a brilliant club house with a bar with upstairs lounge which watches over the pitch.

History (from Wikipedia)


The club played at Lodge Meadow until moving to Mill Field in 1952, at which point they gained the nickname the Millers.[2] The new ground was built by supporters on land they had purchased,[1] and a stand was bought from Grays Athletic for £100, subsequently becoming known as the Pepper Stand.[6] The ground was opened with a local derby match against Grays.[7] Terracing was installed on the other side of the ground, on which a 400-seat wooden stand was erected in 1958 at a cost of £2,600, together with additional terracing.[6] Floodlights were installed in 1967, with Grays again the visitors for the first match played under them.[7] At the time of its closure, the ground had a capacity of 4,000, of which 400 was seated and covered.[8]

During the 2010s the club bought the site of a former gravel pit from Thurrock Council using money raised from selling Mill Field to developers.[2] The 2016–17 season was the club's last at Mill Field, as they moved to Parkside for the start of the 2017–18 season.[9] The new ground featured two seated stands on either side of the pitch, one of which was built into the clubhouse, with the clubhouse roof overhang providing cover.[1] Two covered terraces were erected behind each goal, either side of the goalmouth, whilst an artificial pitch was installed.[1] In 2018, Parkside hosted a number of games in the CONIFA World Cup.[10]
