St Lawrence Ground is a cricket stadium in Canterbury, Kent. Since 2013, it has been known as The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, owing to commercial sponsorship. It was one of the first grounds used for first-class cricket and is home to Kent County Cricket Club since 1847. It is the site of Canterbury Cricket Week, the world’s oldest cricket festival, which takes place every July. Within its confines are one of two grounds that have ever hosted first-class matches: the St Lawrence Lime.

In 2000, the ground’s capacity was increased to 15,000 people, and four One Day Internationals have been hosted there, one each in 1999 (part of the 1999 Cricket World Cup), 2000, 2003 and 2005. The first day/night County Championship match was held at the venue as a test during September 2011.

On the other side of the Nursery, on a knoll which is known as The Great Dune and overlooks the entire ground, are two low-level twin-tier stands erected in 1990 that are surprisingly similar to those they replaced (which were known as the Free Seats owing to them being available to people who had paid just for entrance – additional payment was required for access to other areas). It is said that Gubby Allen, MCC’s long-time self-appointed guardian, steadfastly refused to allow any higher structure because it would have blocked the view of the Nursery and park on the other side of Wellington Road.
