There is one month away until residents across Bolton come together to repeat history.

Save Rock Hall Landmark Challenge will see 300 people come together to recreate a historical picture that was taken 116 years ago - and you're invited to attend.

On August 20, residents are invited to attend Moses Gate Country Park from 2pm to recreate a picture to continue the support for the Save Rock Hall project.

During Rock Hall and Farnworth-related research work, the charity Banana Enterprise was lucky to obtain a real photo postcard.

The picture was taken in 1906, where 300 people from Farnworth and Kearsley Parish Church went to Ilfracombe in Devon.

They gathered together on a hillside called Capstone Hill and formed the word “Devon”.

It was photographed and a real photo postcard was made of the event.

To show support for the Save Rock Hall project, the charity has now decided to create a similar memorable event, 116 years later, again with 300 people taking part.

Jayne Allman, Banana Enterprise Network CEO, said: "We are excited to be doing our Rock Hall Landmark Challenge at Moses Gate Country Park on August 20 at 2pm.

"We got the idea from an old photo postcard from 1906 which I found for sale on an internet auction site.

"On the day we run the event, we will all gather in the park near Rock Hall.

"We want everyone to wear a white top or white t-shirt and we will form the words 'Save Rock Hall'.

"An arial drone photo, very kindly provided by the amazing film producer Sam Picton from What Media, will be taken of us all.

"We don't believe that anything like this has been done before in Farnworth."

The event will take place on August 20, weather permitting.

If the weather is bad the event will take place on August 21.

A certificate will be given to all those who attend.
