Aftermath of the disaster at Valley Parade, 1985

Aerial photo taken early evening on the fateful day, 11th May.

The following are photographs taken by the late Gladys Hannah, a prominent supporter of the club from the early 1960s and a committed fundraiser on behalf of BCAFC. Until the 1990s she continued selling lottery and raffle tickets around the ground and few can forget her cheerful personality.

Photos of Valley Parade the day after the fire. Alan Hannah managed the club shop with Ken Gudgeon and can be seen examining what remained.

Photos of the memorial service at Valley Parade on 21st July, 1985. Shortly after the remains of the main stand were demolished.
