I found out not too long ago from my uncle that I had relatives who were at Burnden Park on the day of the disaster. Also, given I've already done the Reebok I suppose it was a matter of time that I would be building Burnden.
Given the fact that on March 9th we will be observing the 75th anniversary of the Burnden Park disaster I felt it would be a good time to build our former home as my tribute contribution in memory of those who were lost that day.
I know Burnden Park resonates with us all in some way, and I don't want to let anyone down with how it turns out. However, despite managing to obtain some images from Google I am still struggling with getting images to work from (the corner between the Paddock and the Lever End is causing particular problems so I would be grateful if anyone had any images of the ground that they would be happy for me to use.

With that in mind, I want to share my work so far, showing the near-complete Burnden Paddock with work just getting underway on the southeast corner

That's very good to know, unfortunately I would have been too young to experience Burnden (I was a year old when we moved to the Reebok), but I know that nearly every Bolton fan holds it in high regard 🙂

Anyone on Nuts thought of building Burnden in matchsticks?

I did models out of paper and cellotape as a kid, but never matchsticks
