The Turf Moor site has been used for sporting activities since at least 1843, when Burnley Cricket Club moved to the area. In 1883, they invited Burnley FC to use a pitch adjacent to the cricket field, thus making Turf Moor the second-longest continuously used ground in English professional football, behind Preston North End's Deepdale
The following year, a first grandstand was constructed, and soon after a terrace that could hold about 5,000 people. The rest of the stadium consisted of a natural mound on which spectators could stand.
Two covered stands were built in 1908, and, at that time, the stadium could hold more than 50,000 spectators. Turf Moor recorded its highest attendance in 1924, when 54,755 people watched an FA Cup match between Burnley and Huddersfield Town.
Turf Moor has undergone two major periods of redevelopment. The first, between the mid-1950s and mid-1970s, saw all the stands rebuilt. During that period the construction of the Cricket Field Stand made Turf Moor one of the few grounds in the football league with the dressing rooms behind the goal.
Turf Moor underwent further refurbishment during the 1990s, when the Longside and the Bee Hole End terraces were replaced by all-seater stands following the recommendations of the Taylor Report, reducing the capacity to its current level of just under 22,000.
