Lord's, also known as Lord's
Lord's
Cricket
Cricket
Ground, is a cricket venue in St John's Wood, London. Named after its founder, Thomas Lord, it is owned by Marylebone Cricket Club
Marylebone Cricket Club
(MCC) and is the home of Middlesex County Cricket
Cricket
Club, the England
England
and Wales Cricket
Cricket
Board (ECB), the European Cricket
Cricket
Council (ECC) and, until August 2005, the International Cricket
Cricket
Council (ICC). Lord's
Lord's
is widely referred to as the Home of Cricket[1] and is home to the world's oldest sporting museum.[2] Lord's
Lord's
today is not on its original site, being the third of three grounds that Lord established between 1787 and 1814. His first ground, now referred to as Lord's
Lord's
Old Ground, was where Dorset Square
Dorset Square
now stands. His second ground, Lord's
Lord's
Middle Ground, was used from 1811 to 1813 before being abandoned to make way for the construction through its outfield of the Regent's Canal. The present Lord's
Lord's
ground is about 250 yards (230 m) north-west of the site of the Middle Ground. The ground can hold 28,000 spectators. Proposals are being developed to increase capacity and amenity.[3] As of December 2013[update], it was proposed to redevelop the ground at a cost of around £200 million over a 14-year period.[4] The current ground celebrated its two hundredth anniversary in 2014. To mark the occasion, on 5 July an MCC XI captained by Sachin Tendulkar played a Rest of the World XI led by Shane Warne
Shane Warne
in a 50 overs match.[5]

Early history[edit] Acting on behalf of the White Conduit Club and backed against any losses by George Finch, 9th Earl of Winchilsea
George Finch, 9th Earl of Winchilsea
and Colonel Charles Lennox, Thomas Lord
Thomas Lord
opened his first ground in May 1787 on the site where Dorset Square
Dorset Square
now stands.[6] The White Conduit moved there from Islington
Islington
soon afterwards and reconstituted themselves as Marylebone Cricket
Cricket
Club (MCC).[7] In 1811, feeling obliged to relocate because of a rise in rent, Lord removed his turf and relaid it at his second ground. This was short-lived because it lay on the route decided by Parliament for the Regent's Canal.[7] The "Middle Ground" was on the estate of the Eyre family, who offered Lord another plot nearby; and he again relocated his turf. The new ground, on the present site, was opened in the 1814 season. The earliest known match was MCC v Hertfordshire on 22 June 1814.[8] This is not rated a first-class match. MCC won by an innings and 27 runs.[9] The next match known to have been played at Lord's, from 13 to 15 July 1814, was the earliest first-class one, between MCC and the neighbouring St John's Wood
St John's Wood
club, which had several guest players for the occasion, including five leading professionals. MCC won by 4 wickets.[10] The annual Eton v Harrow match was first played on the Old Ground in 1805. There is no record of the fixture being played again until 29 July 1818, when it was held at the present Lord's
Lord's
ground for the first time; Harrow won by 13 runs. From 1822, the fixture has been almost an annual event at Lord's.[11] Ground[edit] Stands[edit]

Stands at Lord's.

As of January 2015, the stands at Lord's
Lord's
are (clockwise from the Pavilion):[12]

Pavilion Warner Stand Grandstand Compton Stand Media Centre Edrich Stand Mound Stand Tavern Stand Allen Stand

Many of the stands were rebuilt in the late 20th century. In 1987 the new Mound Stand, designed by Michael Hopkins and Partners, was opened, followed by the Grandstand (by Nicholas Grimshaw) in 1996.[13] Most notably, the Media Centre (by Future Systems) was added in 1998-9; it won The Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize
Stirling Prize
for 1999.[14] The ground can currently hold up to 28,000 spectators. The two ends of the pitch are the Pavilion End (south-west), where the main members' pavilion is located, and the Nursery End (north-east), dominated by the Media Centre.[12] Pavilion[edit] See also: Long Room

Lord's
Pavilion The main survivor from the Victorian era is the Pavilion, with its famous Long Room; this was built in 1889–90 to the designs of architect Thomas Verity. This historic landmark— a Grade II*-listed building— underwent an £8 million refurbishment programme in 2004–05. The pavilion is primarily for members of MCC, who may use its amenities, which include seats for viewing the cricket, the Long Room and its Bar, the Bowlers Bar, and a members' shop. At Middlesex matches the Pavilion is open to members of the Middlesex County Club. The Pavilion also contains the dressing rooms where players change, each of which has a small balcony for players to watch the play. In each of the two main dressing rooms are honours boards which commemorate all the centuries scored in Test matches at the Lord's ground and all instances of a bowler taking five wickets in a Test innings and ten wickets in a Test match. The only cricketer to hit a ball over the pavilion was Albert Trott, off Monty Noble

on 31 July 1899.[15]

Lord's
Media Centre The Media Centre was commissioned in time for the 1999 Cricket
Cricket
World Cup, and was the first all-aluminium, semi-monocoque[clarification needed] building in the world. It was built and fitted out in two boatyards, using boat-building technology. The centre stands 15 metres (49 ft) above the ground and its sole support comes from the structure around its two lift shafts— it is about the same height as the Pavilion directly opposite it on the other side of the ground. The lower tier of the centre provides accommodation for over 100 journalists, and the top tier has radio and television commentary boxes. The centre's only opening window is in the broadcasting box used by BBC Test Match Special.[16] The building was awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize
Stirling Prize
for architecture in 1999. Tavern Stand[edit]

The Lord's
Lord's
Taverners, a charitable group comprising cricketers and cricket-lovers, take their name from the old Tavern pub at Lord's, where the organisation's founders used to congregate. The pub no longer exists, and the Tavern Stand now stands on its former site. However, a new pub of the same name is open in the grounds, as well as the Members Bar, in the Pavilion. Field[edit] Further information: Lord's
Lord's
slope One of the most distinctive and famous features of the Lord's
Lord's
ground is the significant slope across the field. The north-west side of the playing surface is 2.5 metres (8 ft 2 ins) higher than the south-east side.[17] This slope causes appreciable deviation in bounce of the ball on the pitch, making it easier to move the ball in to right-handed batsmen when bowling from the Pavilion End, and easier to move it away when bowling from the Nursery End. The outfield was notorious for becoming waterlogged, resulting in considerable loss of play due to rainfall, until clay soil was relaid with sand during the winter of 2002–2003. Grace Gates[edit] Further information: Grace Gates One of the features of the ground is the pair of ornamental gates, named in honour of W. G. Grace. In 1923, the W. G. Grace
W. G. Grace
Memorial Gates were erected at the St John's Wood
St John's Wood
Road entrance to the ground.[18] They were designed by Sir Herbert Baker
Herbert Baker
and the opening ceremony was performed by Sir Stanley Jackson, who had suggested the inclusion of the words The Great Cricketer in the dedication.[19] Floodlights[edit]

match at Lord's: Middlesex vs Kent, 27 May 2009

Temporary floodlights were installed at the ground in 2007, but were removed in 2008 after complaints of light pollution from local residents. In January 2009, Westminster City Council
Westminster City Council
approved use of new retractable[20] floodlights designed to minimise light spillage into nearby homes. Conditions of the approval included a five-year trial period during which up to 12 matches and 4 practice matches could be played under the lights from April to September. The lights must be dimmed to half-strength at 9.50 pm and be switched off by 11 pm. The floodlights were first used successfully on 27 May 2009 during the Twenty20
Twenty20
Cup match between Middlesex and Kent.[21] Cricket

games. Lord's
Lord's
typically hosts two Tests every summer plus two one-day internationals. Lord's
Lord's
also plays host to the finals of the National Village Cricket
Cricket
Competition, the MCC Universities Challenge tournament and the Royal London
London
Cup. On 7 September 1963 Lord's
Lord's
hosted the first Gillette Cup final. The Gillette Cup was the first major one-day tournament.[22] The oldest permanent fixture at Lord's
Lord's
is the annual Eton versus Harrow match which began in 1805 ( Lord Byron
Lord Byron
played in the 1805 Harrow XI) and celebrated its bicentenary in 2005. Since 2000 it has been 55 overs per side, but before that it was declaration and before that it was two innings per side over two days. Eton has the balance of wins, but the victor in the bicentenary year was Harrow. MCC Museum[edit]

Perimeter wall display at Lord's

Lord's
Lord's
is the home of the MCC Museum, which is the oldest sports museum in the world, and contains the world's most celebrated collection of cricket memorabilia, including The Ashes urn. MCC has been collecting memorabilia since 1864. The items on display include cricket kit used by, inter alia, Victor Trumper, Jack Hobbs, Don Bradman and Shane Warne; many items related to the career of W. G. Grace; and curiosities such as the stuffed sparrow that was 'bowled out' by Jahangir Khan of Cambridge University in delivering a ball to T. N. Pearce batting for MCC on 3 July 1936. It also contains the battered copy of Wisden that helped to sustain E. W. Swanton through his captivity in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp during World War II. The Museum continues to collect historic artefacts and also commissions new paintings and photography. A recently opened exhibition, which celebrates the life and career of Brian Lara, is especially suitable for children. It contains the Brian Johnston Memorial Theatre, a cinema which screens historical cricket footage for visitors. MCC Library[edit] Lord's
Lord's
also has one of the largest and most comprehensive collection[s] of books and publications dedicated to cricket.[23] The library includes over 17,000 volumes and is open by appointment.[23] In 2010, a selection of 100 duplicates from the library's collection was offered for auction by Christie's with proceeds going to support the library.[24] Test matches at Lord's[edit]
