Lost football grounds in England and Wales, including White Hart Lane and Highbury

Tottenham Hotspur are set to move to their new stadium, despite news which will see the opening delayed.
They had planned to play their first game back in N17 against Liverpool on September 15 but fans most now wait a little longer and many are now reminiscing about their time at White Hart Lane, the world famous home of the Spurs.

 

Football clubs may move on in this modern era but supporters will always remember their team’s old home – indeed, the fans’ old home.
