Your Favourite Cricket Stadium Name

Bit of a fun thread as I was just going over some ground histories and thought - The Wanderers is a name worthy of the occasions that have taken place over there. Absolutely love it.

What's yours? Let's hear some unusual ones.

I've always liked Edgbaston, Trent Bridge and Headingley. Proper names without 'Oval', 'Stadium' or 'Ground' in them.

Just found they refer to the places also. :p Always thought they were names of the grounds.
Never mind.

What do people who live in those places call them?
If you live in Headingley you refer to the stadium as "t'crickit"

as in 'Turn right at Clarendon Road and go up past t'crickit, then go left at Sainsbury's' or 'have you seen that godawful press box up at t'crickit'?

Haha, I had a feeling it would be something random like that. I like it!

I like Eden Gardens and Lords. Both seem like popular choices.

For those not already mentioned, I like Sabina Park and quite like the WACA.

I dislike SWALEC.
