Barry's Fields Sports Ground
Barry’s Fields is Winterslow’s Sports Ground and Pavilion situated in Weston Lane
. It was named after Barry Matthiae, a much loved member of the community who owned and ran the now lost village bakery on Gunville Road, supplying daily fresh bread and cakes for the Parish. He was also known for his support of sports based in the Parish.
The Pavilion is provided with two spacious changing rooms, with en-suite showers. The two storey building also has, on the ground floor, the main function room which can accommodate 100 people for events, with a kitchen and bar, male, female and disabled toilets. The full length first floor is fully equipped with a range of activity equipment associated with its principal use as the home of Youth Zone
The venue is the home of Clarendon Football Club [link], which caters for youth football on Saturday mornings through out the season and hosts the Porton Football clubs senior team for home games on Saturday afternoons. The Pavillion is also home to such diverse use such as Yoga, The Lions Head Art Group and Ki Akido.
Everyone who enjoys sport, whether playing or spectating, can make use of this great facility and hopefully introduce other sports or social activities that could be accommodated at the venue.
