The milestones are being ticked off at Brentford Community Stadium as the construction continues and time is counting down until we leave our historic Griffin Park home. The final Sky Bet Championship game at Griffin Park is less than six months away and in nine months Brentford will be playing in our new stadium. The main structure is now in place at Brentford Community Stadium, as is the pitch and most of the seats.
With work continuing, sketch artist John Webb is continuing to record progress. John, a member of London Urban Sketchers, has taken on the role of regularly visiting the site to fill his sketchbook as the work progresses. And John has widened his scope.
With Brentford's Farewell Griffin Park season, presented by London Pride, under way, John is now sketching at both sites. He has released the image above of Griffin Park as well as others from the new stadium. Further pictures will follow in due course.
We hope to have an exhibition of John’s work at the new stadium when it opens. In the meantime, if you would like to see more of his work, do take a look at his website at johnawebb.weebly.com.
