Burnden and Rose Hill
Once home to the town's football team, Bolton Wanderers, now relocated to
Middlebrook on the B6536 between
Moses Gate and
Bradshawgate in the virtual walk.
The name has its roots north of the English border and is derived from two
Old English words used in the Scottish lowlands, 'burn' meaning brook and
'dene' or 'denu' meaning valley. The name means the stream in a valley (the
River Croal). A name more commonly marked on the maps is Rose Hill for the
same area slightly to the north.
During its last season before it was moved to
Middlebrook, many fans have fond memories of
this venue, apparently built on beer crates to aid the drainage. This was
the second home of the Trotter's, originally this was at Deane, Pikes Lane
Stadium when they founded in 1888, but moved here to Burnden in 1895.
