Barrow’s ground was built for the purpose of Barrow RLFC to play in and 500 supporters helped to construct the stadium. The total cost of the work was £7.500 which was an astonishing amount in 1931. The stadium was named after Commander G. W. Craven, a local war hero, who had started the appeal fund with a donation of £500. The stadium capacity was upgraded in 2010 from 6.500 to 7.500.

The ground is surrounded by houses but there is a large retail park behind one end of the ground with plenty of parking, although you should be weary of parking regulations.
