Wembley stadium was one of the most recognizable grounds in the world with its twin towers.

In 2000 it was knocked down and a new stadium built, but what is oft forgotten about is the work that went on to improve the area a a whole.

Niall McDonald looks at how Brent Council helped to change the area surrounding Wembley.

  1. it’s great that the stadium is up and running…if i’m correct the rebuilding of wembley took like six years…however, in saying that it really is a wonderful home for english football, one of the best stadium’s in the world

    • totally agree Zayn, it is nothing if not impressive. It is also a big undertaking for Brent Council and others to regenerate the whole area, but it is a stadium to be proud of
