It's all about Fulham's ground, although the story starts well over 100 years before the football club arrived. Indeed, there was a Craven Cottage on the site in 1777.

The story comes right up to date with the building of the second Riverside Stand.

Along the way there is drama, tragedy, high-society parties, the Craven dynasty, heroes and villains, financial crises, the near-demise of the football club, the complexities of the original Cottage building and its numerous tenants, followed by the story of the 130-year evolution of the football ground's four sides and the current Cottage building – and much more. And this all on a tiny 8-acre site once surrounded by orchards and farms, then by industrial wharves and now by prestigious living accommodation.
