EDITORS COMMENTS This aerial view of The Dell, Southampton takes us back to 1995 when it was the cherished home of Southampton Football Club. The photo print, captured by Matthew Le Tissier's talented eye from Aerofilms Collection, showcases the iconic stadium in all its glory. Known as one of England's lost football grounds, The Dell holds a special place in the hearts of football enthusiasts. The image highlights not only the architectural beauty of this urban sporting arena but also captures the vibrant atmosphere that once filled its stands. As fans eagerly gathered to witness thrilling matches and cheer on their beloved team, Matthew Le Tissier shone as the star player for Southampton Football Club during his time at The Dell. However, like many stadiums with rich histories, The Dell eventually made way for progress. In 2001, Southampton Football Club bid farewell to this hallowed ground and moved to St Marys Stadium. Yet despite its relocation, memories etched within these walls remain forever cherished by loyal supporters. This remarkable photograph serves as a testament to an era gone by – a reminder of how sport can unite communities and create lasting legacies. It invites us to reflect on the significance of lost football grounds and their impact on local culture and leisure activities. As we admire this stunning aerial recreation from Historic England's collection, let us celebrate not just the game itself but also appreciate how places like The Dell hold immeasurable value in preserving our shared history.
