    This has been on the radar for 2 years with 1 failed visit back in January 2014. Me and a few others had been speaking about checking it out again for a few weeks now and me and another forum member MD decided to check it out today. Kids have been and vandalized a bit of it but it was still pretty good to get here and see some of it before it gets knocked down, a revisit is defo on the cards...

    History from Wiki
    Nene Park is a sports stadium situated by Irthlingborough Northamptonshire England, along the bank of the River Nene and holds 6,441, with 4,641 seated and 1,800 standing. It once hosted football matches but is currently unused. The car park can hold 800 vehicles. From 1992 until 2011 it was the home ground of Rushden & Diamonds until their demise, having from 1969 been the home of predecessor Irthlingborough Diamonds. It became Kettering Town's home for 18 months, with them leaving in November 2012 to play at Corby due to the costs of running the ground. As of then, the ground has become vacant with little immediate chance of further football use in the foreseeable future.

    Very nice, does seem sad it'll get bulldozed after about 20 years of life.

    Are the fake owls still on the roof?

    Nice report :thumb

    Have spent a few days up the lighting towers here in the past when working here, hadn't realised it had closed but don't follow anything to do with football!

    Shame this place is heading for the bulldozers, it was a decent ground when it was open.
