While it may bask in this famethe stadium's beginnings were very humble. The land it was built upon was purchased in and would subsequently become the home to the Harlequins who would play the first ever match against Richmond. The first England test match didn't take place until and a home win ensured things got off on the right footing but cowssheep and horses would be grazing on the pitch just four years later as the stadium became a farm during the First World War. The first Varsity match was played in December by which time the popularity of Twickenham had soared.
Extra accomodation was created in the North Standbuilt in by the legendary football stadium architect Archibald Leitch. By the famous 'Twickenham Look' had come about.
When the Second World War arrivedthe ground became a Civil Defence depotand the closest it got to being hit by enemy action was in July when a V1 flying bomb fell in the front garden of a house opposite the West Gateinjuring sixteen people. The car park was dug up and - appropiately given its original use - turned into allotments to generate much needed fresh food for the locals. The stadium today is at the heart of a multi-million pound business that the RFU controlsbut how does it generate so much money from this one plot of land With such a colourful and celebrated history 'The Secret Life of Twickenham' will dig deeper into it's history to reveal the many men and womencutting across all social backgroundsjobsand positions within the RFU who have helped to build this iconic stadium into a globally recognised brand.
