Coldest place on earth.
Away end in FA cup was poor. TV camera scaffolding on the halfway line was wrapped in black netting so you either had the choice of standing at the front and getting soaked or standing under cover at the back and not being able to see the match.
4G pitch is a bit weird too but I understand why they have it.
Not a bad little set up which is probably fine for the usual crowds of 300 or 400.
Moving to North Yorkshire 4 years ago, apart from my family it was the place I enjoyed being at most. I was a volunteer, Director and Secretary for many years and I loved the place. Still do and visit whenever I can.
Plastic pitch, so never gonna get cancelled, even in Buxton's harshest winter months ...maybe!! Needs a clock and scoreboard though!! A lovely welcoming sports facility and great prices at the bar and coffee shack!! A proper grass roots experience. Proper football ground, like they used to be, but better!
Buxton originally played at the Park, a ground shared with the cricket club, and later played at Cote Lane, London Road and Green Lane before moving to the Silverlands in 1884. The site was originally a field owned by the club's first captain, Frank Drewry. The opening match was held on 1 November 1884, a Derbyshire Cup match against Bakewell, which Buxton won 2–0. Cover was provided for spectators in 1890 (proposals to build a separate pavilion for working class supporters were not taken forward), at the same time as dressing rooms were built. A wooden stand was erected on one side of the pitch and replaced by the current main stand in 1965, which later had seats from Maine Road added to it. On the opposite side of the pitch is the Popular Side covered terrace. The end behind one goal has a covered terrace, with the other end empty. The ground currently has a capacity of 4,000, of which 490 is seated and 2,500 covered. The Silverlands is the highest ground in England at 1,000 feet above sea level.
