Building the Future - Amex Stadium August 2009

Somewhere in a small field in the east of Brighton and Hove something magical is happening - a new football stadium is being constructed.

Get off the train from at Falmer Station from Lewes and you can just about see the top of a stand peering over the trees - the first glimpse of Brighton and Hove Albion's new home.

Approaching the site, it initially looks as though any chance of seeing what is going on are going to be scuppered by a big bastard blue fence. Fortunately, that proved not to be the case. Incredibly, the club (or more likely, the constructors) have actually had the brains to realise that there would be visitors to the site, so have put in prison-style windows.

People have already bent the bars of course to get a better look and in our case, these first pictures of the Albion's new stadium.
