I have visited every OHL arena dating back to the 1950's, and this website exists to share my experiences in visiting each rink - what the arena is like, how the fans there treat opposing fans, etc.
Every time I visit another junior arena I will update the guide, plus I welcome any and all submissions at .

As a small boy I was often taken out on the Malvern commons, adjacent to the former GWR line from Worcester to Hereford, and I would watch the trains as they went by - steam, of course, in those days - and the signals being cleared for each train and put back afterwards.

Most of the other rail fans I knew were mainly interested in locomotives, so it struck me that somebody ought to be pointing a camera at these signals, as the traditional semaphore variety were rapidly disappearing by then.

Welcome to the OHL Arena & Travel Guide, sister site to the QMJHL Arena & Travel Guide.
Below you will find links to OHL arenas from the league's past and present including driving directions, ticket prices, pictures and other information.
In my early teens I started travelling around on the railways, and in the summer I would get a week-long rover ticket covering the whole of the Midlands.
I already had a camera by then, so I started to photograph as many interesting signals as I could find.
