White Hart Lane is now almost completely gone

New, comments

The last vestiges of the old Republic have been swept away.

White Hart Lane is now no more. Workers have cleared nearly the last remnants of the Tottenham Hotspur historic stadium’s south stand to make room for the last third of the new ground.

You can see the part of the ground where the south stand used to sit in this Tottenham live cam. There are grey girders that may (or may not!) be part of what used to be the supporters’ stand, but otherwise the entire stadium has been removed.

I used to check the live cameras almost daily to watch the Lane be slowly dismantled, but I confess I haven’t checked it in a while. Last I looked much of the south end structure was still intact and heavy machinery was working on demolishing the concrete where the seats used to be. Now that’s all gone.

It’s full steam ahead for Spurs now as they work to finish the new £800m state of the art stadium in time for Spurs to begin the 2018-19 Premier League season. Pilings for the unbuilt section of the new ground are starting to be driven, and we should start to see the new south end start to rise in the coming weeks and months.

But for now, let’s keep the memory of White Hart Lane in our hearts, as she is officially no more. Rest in peace, old girl.
