    Keys are not handed over yet, and I am sure the club would not look lightly on trespass/theft before anybody suggests it!

    The keys where handed over at the end of December. Anyway i'm sure they wouldn't mind people going inside just to have a look round for the last time before they put the fences round it when they're demolishing it.

    I stand near enuf to were them pics were taken. Take some beating them shots.
    It looks forlorn to see an empty stadium and thinking COME ON let's have it with the new season so close but looking at them shots it's knowing there is nothing to say cause you know we are not going back in. Sad pics.
    Sooner she's down the better I think. Let's move on.

    As stated, Saints still have the keys, and are incurring costs for the premises.

    I can't imagine them having much of a problem with someone walking through an open door and standing on the terrace. Not doing any harm whatsoever.

    Wigan opened the doors to Central Park before the bulldozers moved in to allow people to say a final goodbye.

    No Pics?

    Hang on, it's boarded up but you managed to get in? That's breaking and entering where I come from!

    There are some great pictures on this thread, keep them coming folks, love it.

    Anyone got a pic of the asbestos sheeting coming of the main stand and almost taking the head of Gary Mercer ?

    Is that strictly true if there is an unlocked opening or the boarding has fallen off and is it any different for were you don't come from Squatters rights if they should have any.
    Tbh I think the empty stadium pics are some of best I've seen of the place and I find that really strange to say. Maybe be it's the emotion of what is coming to the place

    OK, if the entering is done without breaking, it's trespassing where i come from which ain't that far from where you come from!

    Saints are still the owners according to this.

    Thats what was initially mooted.
    looks like things have been delayed somewhat.

    Either that or the January date was just speculation. I don't ever remember reading or hearing anywhere about demolition plans for January. I think it was assumed that would be the case.
