Berwick Rangers' Severn Terrace ground

I have finally 'nailed' this hard-to-pinpoint ground at the edge of the Worcester Racecourse. Only appearing on 1902 O.S. maps, and not any other edition (1888 etc), it was a proper ground within a 2.678 acre field, and there was one grandstand which ran along the eastern touchline, backing on to The Moors (road). The stand appears to be about 40 yards long and today the Swan Theatre occupies the same spot. A car park now occupies most of what was the football ground. I would estimate that the capacity was only around 5,000. The town's prison was ocross the road !
