Fisher Can't Post or Reply Privately

Is anyone able to confirm please whether Fisher's current ground is at the same location as their season in the Vauxhall Conference back in 1990-1991? Specifically, I think the ground has been redeveloped, but is the pitch in the same place? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Different location. On the same road but on the opposite side, a few hundred yards away from the old ground.

Indeed. The area of the old pitch corresponds to the area of grass labelled as Mayflower Park (on Google Maps at least), at the junction of Lagado Mews and Salter Road, just to the south of the very new looking flats with the solar panels on the roof. In fact I'm pretty sure the wall along Lagado Mews is the old wall of the ground at the back of the terrace, possibly lowered slightly.

If the use the box in the top left hand corner of Google maps to scroll back through previous views from Lagoda Mews (the little down arrow where it says "Street View") you will get a decent view of the old Fisher ground at July 2008 and watch it disappear by August 2016
