My only visit to Kidderminster Harriers' Aggborough Stadium was on a sunny day in August 2004. And it was a good day out from what I remember. I visited quite a few grounds along the way, about 7 in total, and this was all before I had a sat nav, so it was worked out on an online route planner and printed out on sheets of paper - that seems a whole load of hassle nowadays! We also went into the town which was pretty good. Eventually at 1PM, we got there and parked up and went in their bar for a couple of pints before going in to watch a great Wycombe performance - goals from Nathan Tyson and Shahed Ahmed gave Wycombe a 2-0 win and they could have had more.

Aggborough is a great ground to visit, and one of my favourites. Away supporters get a  good sized covered terrace behind one goal (of which there is a matching one at the other end for home fans also) Down the side are 2 seated stands - East Stand is the newest and holds around 2000, whilst the Reynolds stand is also modern, having been built in 1994 and holding around 1200. The grounds tea bar has an excellent reputation also, selling home made soup and cottage pies with gravy, amongst all the usual stuff. As mentioned before there is a bar at the ground, called the Harriers Arms which isn't bad.
