Villa Park

Home to Aston Villa since 1897, Villa Park is one of the great stadia of English football. During the first quarter of the 20th century only Goodison could rival its grandeur.
 Aston Lower Grounds was originally an amusement park set in the grounds of a 17th century mansion.  
Up until 1914 the stadium also hosted cycling and athletics events- in this photograph from 1907 the banked cycling track is clearly visble.
