London Colney: Arsenal FC training ground
London Colney: Arsenal FC training ground
When Arsene Wenger finally leaves Arsenal FC this training ground, which was built to his design and specifications, will be one of his lasting legacies. It was opened in 1999 at a cost of about 10 million pounds. There are ten full size pitches, two with under-soil heating, with a state-of-the-art, as it was then, dressing room complex. These facilities are regularly used by the England team for training in advance of international matches. In 1999 Arsenal were still playing at Highbury, and, were it not for green belt land planning restrictions, would have seriously considered this location for their new stadium, with its proximity to the M25 Motorway. In the event of course TQ3185 : Highbury: Emirates Stadium, N5 was built instead. This image was taken from the Watling Chase Timberland Trail public footpath.
