SI TENIM UN PASSAT, TENIM TOT EL FUTUR

This plaque tells you when it was erected, & that it was by Philip Jackson.



Across the busy road is the old famous West Ham pub, the 'Boleyn Tavern'.



It is situated on the corner of Green Street, the name of this throughfare 'immortalised' in the hooligan flick of the same name, loosely based on the Inter City Firm, the sequel of which was so poor that it went straight to DVD!



By the ground is a church, I thought the name rather apt, and you have to be extremely compassionate to anyone unfortunate enough to follow the Hammers! ;-)



On the sideroad by the ground is the Hammers Social Club.



Back to the main entrance to the ground, this was the side that was open for the Youth Cup match, as you will see when we get inside.



By the road are these club gates.



And a sign advertising the hotel in one of the stands, which the club runs.



Here is one of the blurry images, of the main entrance, try to notice the blue plaques, between the white pillars, either side of the glass doors.



These blue plaques were erected by the Heritage Foundation, & not by any organisation called Sports Heritage, despite that name being on them. While searching for the group responsible I found this interesting website of the same name. No connection to this set of photos, but a link worth looking at.
This one is dedicated to their former manager 'gentleman' Ron Greenwood, who went on to manage England.



Bobby Moore, who is still the only Englishman to lift the World Cup, who died of cancer, & now has a charity named after him.



And long serving manager John Lyall.



Further along was this plaque dedicated to their First World War fallen.



Just past this was their club store.



And beyond that the ticket office.



Another plaque, this one for the club museum.



Next up is a set of turnstiles, with engraved bricks on them.



Here we look back along the exterior. Is is me, or are those castles just too tacky?



Here we see some close ups of the engraved bricks.




The usual sign of banned items, usual at all big grounds.
