19 - SW19

A postcode perhaps better known to the wider sporting world for its tennis connections, SW19 was where Plough Lane saw Wimbledon play their home games from September 1912 to May 1991. While site redevelopment plans were negotiated, the stadium remained derelict for several years until it was finally demolished in 2002. The site then became a private housing development known as Reynolds Gate, named after former Wimbledon player Eddie Reynolds, which was completed in 2008. Plans to build a new stadium on the nearby site of the Wimbledon Greyhound track are currently underway.
