Brighton and Hove Albion - Falmer Stadium

Falmer At Christmas - The Video

14th December 2009

With construction having been ongoing for around a year and the first university semester of the academic year over, the middle of December seemed like as a good a time as any to head back to Falmer and check out progress on the new stadium. Needless to say, it has progressed somewhat since our last voyage, and the site now features what can only be described as a bloody great crane as well the arch that will support the roof. On a side note, it was delightful to see the builders taking great joy in the task at hand, with two smashing things up while singing "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles".  

A car travels along the A27, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that has since been ruined by the stadium construction The roof arch is beginning to dominate the stadium site, as well as the crane that will be used to erect it
The rear of the east stand with a large pile of excavated chalk A closer look at the rear of the east stand, which will be the smaller of the side structures
This arched area will hold the concourses for the south stand The east stand with the south stand concourse and a copper-looking device that will be used to erect the roof
This structure that looks like a large pile of boxes supported by some scaffolding will act as a support Crocs on Tour mascot Baby Potts enjoys the view
The east stand in all her concrete glory This concrete thing will be used to support the roof arch as the end will slot in, much like a giant Lego set
