I took a photo from the car park at Myddelton House, but it was a very grey day and the main building practically vanished into the overcast background! Things are a little more advanced than in the aerial view Vedi posted, though.

Cheers for the update SS57, hope the OS updates finally the gallery page. Sounds all like it will be completed this season and the pre-season can be started at the new training ground. good times.

does this mean we move into the complex for pre season ??
In December, there was a job advert on the OS for an academy kit assistant and in the info it said "Initially, for the first four/five months of employment the successful candidate will be based at the Club’s current training ground in Chigwell, moving to the new training ground in Enfield in May/June 2012"
Guess that is the answer for the expected move-in, provided all goes to plan!

Any ideas what's happening to Spurs Lodge? Develop it or sell it off?
I'm not certain, because I've never been there, but as most of it is open space, I suspect that the local planning authority will want it to remain similarly open, i.e., any major new development would be unlikely to get planning consent.

And I believe I read that THFC doesn't actually own the land. Not certain of that, either.

OK, meat and two veg time:

How does it compare to the facilities available to the teams around us in the Premiership?

How does it compare to teams across the Continent who have what is considered the 'cream of the cream' facilities? Say, Ajax or Barcelona (right, I know, but still...)

We must aim to be the best and most innovative in all we do.

I put this thread together a 18 months ago with most of the PL training grounds :-
