Work starts on Gimblett's Hill

Work begins today (Monday March 28th) on the remodelling of Gimblett’s Hill.

The work is being done in order to improve accessibility on matchdays, while retaining the history and character of one of the most popular parts of the Cooper Associates County Ground.

Here is a brief summary of what will occur during the works:

  • Gimblett’s Hill will be extended under the big screen and into Legends Square. The Legends Square Bricks have been carefully and sensitively removed and will be reintegrated into the new development
  • Levels one and two on Gimblett’s Hill will be flattened to create a new accessible aisle. This will be widened for Wheelchair access and will also include electrical charging points for chairs and mobility vehicles.
  • Level three will be retained as a general Members/spectator area which will include the popular memorial benches.
  • A brick structure will be introduced along the front of the Hill with balustrading.
  • Ramp access will be introduced at the Marcus Trescothick Pavilion end of the site.

The work is scheduled to be completed in June and we will do everything possible to ensure that the match day experience isn’t detrimentally impacted during the LV= Insurance County Championship fixtures in April and May.

If you’d like to know more about this project, or other accessible facilities at the Cooper Associates County Ground, then please call 01823 425301.
