Capacity:1,800Record attendance: 1,742 v A.F.C. Sudbury, FA Vase semi-final, 20th March 2004Current Northern Premier League grounds visited 39/62Holt House was originally an area with several pitches, before being enclosed in 1975 when Colne Dynamoes joined the Lancashire Combination. In the first half of the 1980’s three stands were erected and floodlights installed, with another new stand added in 1986. After Dynamoes, the ground was used by the Colne Royal British Legion FC until they also folded in 1995. The wooden main stand has 160 red flip seats made up of three rows. The Nigel Coates Stand is a full covered terrace behind the goal, with further cover down one side. The 1996 Lounge, Reds Bar and changing rooms are in between the stand and the turnstile entrance in the corner.✔716 Hoult House✔716 Hoult HouseColne o

107 miles ground-to-groundDeparted UTS Stadium on team coach at 1545, back at 0040.✔716 Hoult HouseArrived at Holt House at 1845, later than planned because of heavy rush hour traffic in Harrogate, where we called to pick up one of the players from the train station.On arrival I legged it down the hill and walked back up another steeper hill to the town centre, to visit two Good Beer Guide pubs - The Wallace Harley (JDW) and Boyce's Barrel. A good night out in Colne, with my only regret being that I would have loved to visit Holt House during the daytime for the picturesque backdrop views of Pendle and the surrounding areas.
