The Barwell Stand is seeing plenty of changes this week as the development continues apace.
Most visible to the outside world, whether visitors to the stadium or viewers on the webcam on the Northampton Saints website, is the addition of the first of the 2,000-plus seats that will take the capacity of Franklin's Gardens up to 15,500.
Meanwhile inside the stand plasterers, tilers, electricians and plenty of other tradespeople have been hard at work on the interior of the New Members' Bar and its facilities, getting it ready in time for the Saints' Aviva Premiership clash with Saracens on Saturday, November 7th.
Work is also well underway on two new sets of turnstile blocks and putting in the framework for both big screens that will dominate the north end of the stadium and ensure that all supporters will have a view, regardless of where they are sitting or standing.
With so many changes in the stadium, including new designation of seating blocks from letters to numbers, new access control, and different car parking arrangements for the first few games of the season, the Saints' management is asking all supporters attending the Saracens game to arrive at Franklin's Gardens earlier than they might have otherwise done in previous seasons.
Tickets for the highly anticipated clash between the 2014/15 Aviva Premiership's league winners and eventual champions have been in high demand, and they are selling quickly.
