The Manor Ground was home to Oxford United for 76 years.
The stadium was a hodge-podge collection of stands, with three separately roofed stands on one side and one on the other side with another smaller stand wedged in the corner and adjacent to the uncovered terrace that was used for visiting supporters.
The other end was a more traditional-looking covered terrace that was populated by the home fans.
The Manor Ground was another stadium that was deemed unusable after the Taylor Report came out. The club decided that it was more feasible to move to a new all-seater ground than to take on renovation work.
The record attendance at the Manor Ground was on 29th Feb 1964, when Oxford were beaten 1-2 by Preston North End in an FA Cup sixth-round tie. 22,750 spectators were in attendance that day.
Capacity was down to 9,500 by the time the ground was closed.
The last game to be played at the Manor Ground was on May 1st 2001. The match was a 1-1 draw with Port Vale in a season that saw Oxford relegated to division 3 with a woeful haul of just 27 points.
The following video shows the club’s transition from The Manor Ground to the Kassam Stadium.
The Manor Ground was demolished in 2001 and is now the site of The Manor Hospital.
