Ted Undies type clue -  all of us have  probably, quite rightly,  looked down at them at some time or other.

Oooh, you little tinker. Great clue.

Begins with B.

if you're all replying to my last but one effort, copied at the top of this page, - then it's been solved: Grimsby.

My last one still stands though (Traf knows, but he always does and is not saying).

Not always, mate, 70%-ish.
I've a pretty good photographic memory and I used to look at loads of pics of old grounds. I still do, when clubs move. It's interesting to look back at how a ground has evolved over time to the point it was vacated.

Well on that last point, I wonder what the best one was before it was vacated. Not in terms of history/memories etc as Burnden would not be beat. But in terms of perfectly serviceable grounds being sold, knocked down and moved from simply for economics?

nope

As I say, most of us will have looked down on them; rightly so during Euro years.

Looking down , is that a cryptic clue , viewed from above travelling to Europe. 

Only ground I know that is often viewed from above is Brentford who used to paint adverts in the stand roof ( not Ingersoll Rand ,) to catch the eye of passing flights from nearby Heathrow . 

Oh and it is an old heap of a ground too

yep! Plus -  whenever I did it anyhow - the flight path was always slightly south of the ground on approach. Hence "rightly so" in the clue.
