Eastville - Bristol Rovers
A Closer Look At The North Stand
The stadium was also used for greyhound racing for a number of years, before finally being re-developed as a Retail Park in 1998. The ground was close to a large gas holder and the smell that sometimes wafted over the ground, which gave the Club fans their nickname of 'The Gas' or 'Gas heads'. The Club moved to Twerton Park where they ground shared with Bath City for 10 years before moving back to Bristol and to the Memorial Ground in 1996.
