Description
The Boleyn Ground is the official name of Upton Park, the football stadium of West Ham United. West Ham United moved to the location in 1904 and rented ground from the "London" District of Upton Park (the ground was actually in the Essex Council District of East Ham which did not become part of London until 1965) who were using Green Street House as a school. Green Street House was known locally as Boleyn Castle because of its imposing nature and an association with Anne Boleyn (she had either stayed at, or as some believe, owned the house). Hence renting the grounds of "Boleyn Castle" the name Boleyn Ground came into being. Today the ground is far more commonly known as Upton Park, after the area of London in which it is located. #Boleyn #Castle #Football #Green #Ground #Ham #Mean #Park #Soccer #Stadium #Street #United #Upton #West
