History

Bromley moved to Hayes Lane in 1938 from their previous ground, also on the same road. It initially featured a 2,500-seat stand on one side of the pitch, with the remainder of the pitch surrounded by banking. The ground was opened by Stanley Rous on 3 September 1938, with Walthamstow Avenue winning 6–1. The record attendance at the ground of 10,798 was set on 24 September September 1948 for a friendly game between Bromley and a Nigeria XI. Floodlights were installed in 1960, and were formally switched on for a game between Japan and an Isthmian League XI on 27 September.

The banking was later replaced by concrete terracing, with both ends of the pitch later covered. The original stand burned down in October 1992, and was replaced by a much smaller 320-seat stand, which was opened the following year. Seats obtained from the London Aquatics Centre were installed behind one goal to meet ground grading regulations after promotion to the National League.
