I wonder how long the grass on the pitch is now! Nana get the drone up mate! Lol
The actual towers. Well, tower, the one next to the Princess Royal. Not sure if they intend to retain the full height however.
Haven't seen this before but very much smells of a graduate getting a bit too creative with the artistic images. As soon as a the hard nose commercial manager for the contractor/developer gets hold of it - I'd bet my bottom dollar it'll get canned in meeting no.1
Looks like the dugout canopies are still there. Surprised the club could not sell / donate them as relatively new and would have thought easily removable.I took this last month:
Will the open space be for public use (ie. Common ground) ? Would be nicecto be able to have a walk through it and have a picnic in one of the penalty areas.
I might be being over cynical here but I'd be surprised if that space, despite being 'public', will be the kind that you'd want to have a picnic in or feel comfortable spending any great length of time. My guess is it'll have a fairly austere feel about it - hard landscaped paths, bordered shuberry/trees etc and a few benches thrown in for good measure. Basically the usual type of space you'd expect to find in between a row of flats rather than a park as the term 'public space' conjures up. But, I might be wrong, and the depiction in the artist's impression of the gypsy caravan and kid climbing a ladder to pick fruit from a tree might happen, I'm just bitter they haven't thrown in a monorail station too.

A few non-league clubs from some distance did take seats etc so I’d be surprised if local clubs hadn’t been aware and given the opportunity. If they didn’t avail themselves it’s probably because in fact there wasn’t anything they wanted.When you think about it im sure there would be loads of non league clubs that would love bits and pieces from the ground. So many seats, rails, bits of the stands that could be used. Just the taking down, transport and restructuring required that could be an issue. Clubs like Hampton & Rich, Hanworth Villa, Bedfont, etc etc must be able to re use some bits and bobs.
