Description

Millwall Football Club had already taken up residence at The Den by the time they relocated there in 1910. They played their first match at the ground on October 22nd, 1910 versus Brighton (0-1). The Den recorded its highest capacity in 1937 when a 48,672 spectators attended a match against Derby County.

The stadium suffered extensive damage during the Second World War when a bomb hit the North Terrace and the Main Stand burned down.

At that time, the Den was hemmed in by three railroad lines that completely enclosed the stadium. As a result, the upper parts of the North and Ilderton Road terraces were cut off on the sides.

The Main Stand was the only part of the stadium with seating and a complete cover. The partial roofs on the other sides only covered the upper third.

The Den got particularly famous for its hostile and intimidating atmosphere.

No changes were made in the decades following, and already by the late 1970s plans were made for the construction of a new stadium with 25,000 seats. The construction of this stadium began in the late 1970s and was completed in 1984.

The stadium was demolished in 2001 to make way for new housing. These plans resulted in nothing and in the mid 1980s, a minor refurbishment was done to patch up the heavily decayed ground; however, this did not have any effect. The stadium was demolished in 2001 to make way for new housing.

After the board restarted their plans to move to a new stadium several hundred yards further north, it was completed.

In December 1990, the new stadium was unveiled. In 1993, the club made the move to the New Den.

The old Den got subsequently demolished and replaced by housing.
