Gillespie Road Park 2

east stand

I set off from home at about 10am and arrived at Gillespie Road via the Piccadilly line; Boston Manor to Arsenal an hour later. Exiting the tube station I turned left and a few seconds later I was at the entrance to the park. I passed the old entrance to Highbury's North Bank end which is now appartments and despite being a Chelsea fan could not help feeling quite sad, as although a nice job has been done on rebuilding the site as flats and retaining the East and West stands incorporating dwellings within, I could not help but think what a fine stadium Highbury was and of all the people, events and emotions that had filled the place for decades and were now just ghosts.
