My local football team - Bristol City - are making changes to their ground (Ashton Gate) over
the next few years and the first phase involved the demolition of one of the stands. For a few
lucky fans who live nearby, this meant they suddenly had a free view of the pitch from their
houses. One enterprising fan built a platform on top of his garden shed which he dubbed 'The
Shed End'. (The demolished stand was known as 'The East End'.) He's become a bit of a
celebrity and during a couple of matches was even raising banners to get the fans in the
ground singing. The free view won't last of course. As soon as construction of the new stand
begins he'll have to pay to get in if he wants to see the team play.
