Thanks, there are people who want us to close just as there are people who want Poole Speedway to close.

The drainage shown in the pictures aren't for houses cause the normal procedure with house building is that the oversite (the lower part of the house from the foundations to damp course/ finished floor level) is built before any internal drainage (the pipework for the outlets coming from in the house like toliets, baths, showers sinks) is constructed. 

 

From what I can see there are no oversites for houses in the pictures. To me its looks the pipework has been built in readiness for prefabricated structures to be delivered and fixed onto them. - I've seen in reports that the new stands at the Stadium will be prefabricated structures!

 

Lets hope we see Swindon along with other defunct tracks back next season!

Call me naive coombers me old mate, but I have always thought the new stadium would happen. I still do to be honest. 

Obviously I hope so as well but after an initial flurry of work a few months ago it would appear nothing has happened in a while and no sign of anyone working on it the times I've driven past in the last few weeks. Weather been spot on so there shouldn't be any excuses for this. Just can't see it happening.

How dare those builders destroy a listed building which hold so many memories for so many people! Is there no sentimental consideration nowadays?  Furthermore, what has happened to all those wonderful insects that made their home within that nostalgic structure?

I managed to salvage an Izal bog roll, the only light bulb, and blue plaque which read "Lord Lucan was ere".

Im led to believe those Lorry Like Trailers which can be seen in the Car Park are supposed to be the new stand, but as I say they look more like Lorry Trailers..
