GROUND HISTORY adapted from "The Ultimate Directory of English & Scottish Football League Grounds"
 
Opened in 1905 by the local council as Osborne Road, the facilities included a 475 seat stand on the east side with embankments around the remainder of the pitch. Leyton FC became tenants in the same year and vacated the ground in 1914, following which it was used as the works ground for Bryant & May until their return in 1929. In 1937 the council declined to offer a new lease to Leyton FC and Clapton Orient moved in from Lea Bridge Stadium for the commencement of the 1937/8 season.

Following the end of WWII both the ground and the club were “re-branded” (Brisbane Road was now the home ground of Leyton Orient FC) and, in the next thirty years, improvements made to the stadium. The embankments were enlarged and concreted, the west side roofed and a new replacement stand, utilizing redundant steelwork from Mitcham Greyhound Stadium, constructed in two phases [in 1956 and 1962] on the east side. The record attendance of 34,345 was set at the FA Cup 4th Round tie v. West Ham United (1-1) on January 25th, 1964 and the west side was later re-terraced and installed with seats in 1977 whilst a new all seated stand was constructed at the south end in 2000.

In 2004 work commenced on the reconstruction of the stadium to include blocks of flats in each corner of the ground. The west stand and north terrace were totally demolished and the main stand on the east side truncated, temporarily reducing the ground’s all-seat capacity to 4,800. In 2005 the 2,500 seat west stand was opened to give a 7,700 capacity at the start of the 2005/6 season. The pitch size was 115 x 80 yards.
