Unfortunately, the site remains closed. We did not know about that and stopped by (Dec 29) to enjoy the fence and written apologies. It is unclear when and if this site will be reopened. It does not look if it is going to happen any...More
We parked up at 2pm on Thursday 20th December and it was closed due to lack of personnel. It doesn’t say if orwhen it will reopen, this includes the museum and the stadium. Absolutely gutted as had driven a long long way to see this.
