Walthamstow Stadium is to shut down in August
Walthamstow Stadium, the greyhound racing venue in London where much of the artwork for Blur‘s ‘Parklife’ album was shot, is set to close in August.
The front cover of the 1994 album was not shot at the venue, but pictures of the band enjoying a night out at the racecourse feature inside the CD booklet.
Charles Chandler, whose family has owned the venue since it opened in 1933, explained that falling profits has forced the sale of the stadium.
It is set to be redeveloped as flats in the summer.
