Guys excellent photos as usual.

I’m looking on line now for those brick carriers a lot easier than balancing 4/6 on your arm.

Fascinating. I walk by most days, but dont always see as much as this. Thank you, keep up the good work.
 
I have been watching all these photos for numerous weeks so my thanks for all the updates! :nworthy:

Hopefully, my mid table bet may come in to enable me to get a season for the new Grandstand along with all the apparently superb wheelchair access and conference facilities that will then be available. :scarf:

wow, As ever thanks very much.

Some good progress all over. Its a joy to watch by these photos.

Does anybody know what is going to happen the land we have nicknamed the garden between the Demport and the control room?

The changing rooms are one hell of an optical illusion. One picture I think 'wow they really look tiny' then another I think it looks very spacious.

The GTs bar just looks huge in every shot :lol:

I wonder what sort of signage and sprucing up both buildings will get. I assume the changing rooms won't just be a blank wall, with all the other branding and murals within the ground. And same with the bar, because the design on the planning application is very placeholder-y.

With perhaps 18-20 players in there along with the Manager, the Coaches, the Physio and the Trainer, as well as all the kit etc., the Changing Rooms do look a bit on the small side.

Yet they are twice the EFL minimum standard!
 
Looking great thanks for these photos.

It does seem strange to have the home dressing room and entrance onto the pitch right next to the away fans. Not a big deal for most games in leagues 1 and 2 but for big games it could be or for when we get to the Championship...

Thanks for the photo's great to see them.

I wonder if there were any Air Raid shelters at Home Park - just that you mentioned there may have been a basement, due to the bricks being found at some depth.

My thoughts as well , far better where they are now with the teams coming out in the midst of the home fans as it should be. IMO not really very well thought out.

Maybe that is the only place for the supporters in order to maximise the earning potential of the space under the grandstand. But what's the alternative now? Move the away supporters? But where? I guess the Argyle players will have to deal with it.

It is well thought out because there'll be a long extendable tunnel there to bring the players out in front of the Mayflower.
