The Bolton News: Here’s an interesting photo from our archives which Looking Back readers have helped provide more information about.

It was taken in November 1973 and the caption on the back simply states ‘Rosehill site, Bolton’.

Wanderers fans were quick to point out that the floodlights you can see belong to Burnden Park, home of Bolton Wanderers until 1997. You can just about  make out the older Embankment end and scoreboard facing the camera.

On the photo, there is no explanation for what appears to be sort of drilling operation going on - the large black pipe sticking up into the air behind the Rover could be some kind of bore. Perhaps they were drilling for oil in Great Lever!
