Newbury Football Club's Faraday Road football ground destroyed by fire
THE clubhouse at Newbury Football Club’s Faraday Road football ground has been gutted by a fire.
The fire took place last night and ravaged the building.
Updates to follow.
The site has been empty since the summer of 2018 when West Berkshire evicted Newbury Football Club to prepare for the redevelopment of the London Road Industrial Estate.
The facility has since fallen into a state of disrepair, and a planning application to demolish the clubhouse and turn the site into an open recreation space was set to be voted on in early September.
