In the middle of last season, Arsenal.com conducted an unusual interview with director Ken Friar. Setting out from Highbury, he walked to the new ground telling the story of Emirates Stadium on the way. It was a revealing piece, charting this historical move for the Club.
Few men have been associated with Arsenal for as long as Mr Friar. He first worked at Highbury back when George Allison was in residence, more than 60 years ago. Since then he's witnessed history unfolding at one of Europe's most famous football establishments.
In part two of this special feature, Mr Friar talks about the consultation process with local residents, the issue of stadium capacity, the Arsenal underground station, getting supporters in and out of the new ground, the North and South bridges, the new offices, benefits to the Borough of Islington, Arsène Wenger's input in the move and why Emirates Stadium will be "one of the best" in Europe.
Part one of Mr Friar's walking tour is still available on Arsenal TV Online on Thursday.
