Groundspotting

Here’s a pastime I like to call “Groundspotting from the windows of trains”.

I understand that the esteemed writer Daniel Gray, has written something similar in “Saturday, 3pm”. All I’ll say is that this mediocre mind had the same thought as a great one. It’s amazing what you think about when you look around.

The rules are very simple; If you see any part of a football ground, no matter how small that part may be, from the windows of a moving train the ground is added to the list.
