The list was created by Chief Cricket Writer, Scyld Berry who based the list on his personal choice and those that are not currently used for first-class cricket.

The school has always taken great pride in the maintenance of the grounds, having previously visited Lord’s Cricket Ground to learn about groundskeeping techniques from their Head Groundsman.

The school’s Director of Sport, Tom Webley, said: ‘To be considered in the top 10 most picturesque cricket grounds in Britain is wonderful, especially considering there are several thousand grounds!’

‘This is a testament to how special our cricket ground is and how incredible our Estates team is to achieve such perfection.’

The school’s cricketers are currently preparing ahead of the new season which starts in April and for their tour to Barbados next year.
