It was just the Trinity and North Stand corner. The Holte and Witton lane remained separate.
Yes I know and that could have been addressed when the Witton lane and Holte end were rebuilt under Ellis's watch.

What would the capacity have been if they were built?

About 52k was the bigger option.

Shows how much of a philistine Herbert was.

We had a stand as majestic as the Trinity, but he was swayed by the new builds at Sunderland and Boro.

I always thought those designs were poxy even back then.  Boro I could understand, as Ayresome Park didn't have much going for it. But Roker Park was a famous old venue.  If they genuinely couldn't redevelop on that site and incorporate some of the old features, the new build should at least have had some nod to their past.

ive never seen these plans before. They look pretty good. The plans I saw I think were from more recently. Or maybe just didn’t include the facade. I’d be happy if we built this and it looked like it does in the renders.

Seems poorly designed near the Witton, as you will have a lot of restricted view. It wouls need to curve round a bit more.

Interesting pictures. Reminds me of Newcastle which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as St James’ is impressive.

For me, the priory should be doing the North Stand and DE stand at the same time and possibly join those two stands instead. They’re both no longer fit for purpose (concourse and facilities wise at least) so a bit of joined up thinking would be better than doing one stand, then think of doing the next one 5-10 years later.

I'm some someone like Cowdenbeath had planning permission to expand to 150,000 until World War Two intervened. I'm sure that would have been full every game.
It was Cowdenbeath ... they'd have been the Barcelona of Fife had it not been for Hitler and his goons.

Never seen those before. Not a fan of filling in the corners tbh. And nothing in those plans to sort out the cock up where the Holte joins the DE. It really boils my piss that does. I may have mentioned it before.

I’m not a fan of St James’ Park, it’s too lopsided. It looks like someone’s cut-and-shut it with the Bescot.

The only wrap around should take place at lower tier/section of each stand.

Didn’t Port Vale plan to build a 100,000 “Wembley of the North” Stadium after the war?
