The Glebe Land playing field is another community facility managed by the Stanwix Community Association. After years of occupation by a solitary donkey 😉 the grassy area at the end of Church Street was obtained on a lease by the SCA to accommodate children from Stanwix School for their outdoor games lessons and for local football teams and other Stanwix based community groups, who needed a grassy area to operate from.
The facilities are basic. It is just a simple half sized football pitch; suitable for 5 a side or junior sized football matches. Its greatest benefit is that it is pretty safe and secure for events involving children, as it is surrounded on all sides by high hedges or fences; with just a single gated entrance. There are currently no toilets or changing facilities on site.
If your group needs to find a small sized playing field in the Stanwix or Carlisle area to use; then check our booking manager for availability. During term time, priority on weekdays is given to Stanwix School for lessons or special events. On summer evenings and at weekends it is primarily for groups within the Stanwix area, but if there is availability, we welcome bookings from groups from the wider area.
