Brighton and Hove Albion - Falmer Stadium

Falmer from Afar

08th October 2010

What with it being just two weeks since our last visit to the Amex, we decided to head up to a number of vantage points around Falmer in order to photograph the near-completed stadium shell from the distance. Two things were very striking - that, when the club said it would "blend into the surroundings", they were talking absolute tripe. And when the opposition said it would be "spoil an area of outstanding natural beauty", they were talking an equal amount of rubbish. As our pictures show, it looks a truly stunning structure on the Sussex landscape. On a closer inspection, the West Stand exterior is now all up, the main part of the bridge at Falmer station is erected and it surely won't be long until the stadium has reached the point where you will no longer be able to see into it.
