History of St James Park

The history of St James Park, home to Exeter City Football Club is a one-year project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), which aims to identify, document, preserve and share the tangible and intangible history of the Club for communities of fans, staff and players in Exeter and beyond.

By tangible history we mean photos, programmes, old newspaper articles, but also footballs, boots, ephemera, whereas by intangible heritage we mean the memories, stories, and oral histories that may be associated to them, or the stands, turnstiles, pubs, and so on.

We hope you will enjoy exploring the content created as part of this project.
