We were pleased to be appointed as landscape designers to work on Woodville Recreation Ground following a successful bid

...to Sport England for funding to improve the football pitches.

 

Full-sized natural turf pitch

The new natural tuf pitch is designed as a full sized pitch to meet the Football Association's 'Grass Pitch Quality Performance Standard'. The full sized pitch will be mainly for over 18's football play while improvement of the existing mini-soccer pitch will support local junior teams.

The project involved regrading the existing site, installation of a drainage system and ball-stop fencing, and establishment of good sport turf. The project's feasibility stage involved  a ground investigations survey together with topsoil testing.

Woodville Rangers FC

Woodville Rangers Football Club have 2 adult teams and 10 junior teams. Redevelopment of the football pitches at Woodville will bring a much needed quality facility to the area.

Interesting Site History

Woodville in South Derbyshire has an interesting industrial past. During the 19th century the site of the recreation ground was surrounded by brick works and pottery kilns made possible by the combination of good quality clay and coal once mined throught the area. Today the brickworks, pottery kilns and coal mines within the area are almost all gone.
