Cover: Yes
Floodlights: Yes

Notes: The ground is very exposed to any strong winds blowing down off the hills, and unfortunately the reasonably sized covered enclosure (which holds around 150) is no protection from the harsh chill. Brig-O-Lea is another of the few Central League venues with floodlights although they are probably mainly used for training purposes. Opposite the enclosure can be found the tea bar and the changing rooms as well as a few lines of wooden sleeper terracing.
