*Stockport has the Mersey right behind it
*Fulham has the Thames out the back of what used to be the old away end
*Forest has the Trent near it (down one side by memory, and presumably its not far from Meadow Lane either but I can't remember how close)
*Shrewsbury used to have the guy with the Coracle who fetched the ball out of the River Shrew (?) when they were at the Gay Meadow. I've been to the new Straight Meadow but don't remember it being near the River

What other grounds are well near rivers?

Roker Park was near the sea.

Hartlepool is close to water. I remember the wind blowing in from a battered old stand in the 80's, and the last time we was there we was drinking in some pub next to water.

Grimsby is very close to the North Sea.

Norwich is near a river, as is Peterborough.

Isn't Man Utd near the Liverpool - Leeds Canal?

There's one in Scotland, that's even closer. Arbroath maybe?

You have to catch a boat to Venezia's ground.













And has anyone mentioned Stockport? Grin

Hartlepool is miles away from water I'm afraid. Well, not miles, but there's three roads, a supermarket, and two car parks to cross before you get to the Marina.
