    During a day out with the good lady, I decided that we should go to old Arsenal Ground, (Mecca).

    Quite sad to see this wonderful building in this state however i'm led to believe that the main stand frontage will remain as it may be listed?

    I was amazed at the redevelopement that has taken place but also the possibile UE oppurtunities.

    No internal photos or even a proper report, however hopefully some of you high flyers will get in there.


    Through the North stand gates, ain't they working hard?


    The East Stand, at least theres a little Arsenal still there.




    The Southern end of the East stand.


    Could'nt miss this, the cranes reflected, that was Highbury. :(


    Go gentle on the comments, this is my first real'ish thread, an hope that this provides some of you with an idea for a visit?

    Please I can share my thoughts and photo's with you all.

    Good luck

    I took a little visit in to take some snaps...

    Access in was no problem.....lots of signs warning of CCTV...but I didnt obeserve anything obvious.
    Security lives in his hut....saw him out once...but I reckon it was juts for a slash.
    One point of warning..there is hardly any 'city' sounds around...the site is very very quiet with only the hum of a generator (on a 10min on/10min off cycle)....this makes everything a little slower as every sound you make is amped.
    I headed up this crane for a better view.

    The 'football' ground in unrecognisable...there is a very deep excavation wher the pitch once was....building shells are already up around the perimeter of the pitch.There is a large number of cranes on site ....various sizes but all pretty small.....it does make for a bizarre skyline

    The 'old' and the new ( in the background)

    A few more shots of the crane....whilst I'm there




    Heading back down ...it does seem indeed like the famous 'Arsenal Stadium' Walls are being kept...although they look in pretty bad shape...


    Not really much else to see its just a big busy building site...

    Might be worth another look a bit more into development....but having a good poke around there doesnt seem to be much left of what Arsenal Stadium was....
