STEP 7

Listed below are the step 7 grounds that I consider worth visiting. These range from fully-fledged grounds that would serve higher steps well, or in some cases, railed pitches. For the sake of completeness, where a league has a large number of good grounds, I will seek to complete those that are more basic as well.
