This unusual photo was taken from one of Blackburn’s most impressive vantage points.

Taken in May 1971, you are looking down on to the roof of the West End Catholic youth centre in the foreground from the top of the Thwaites Tower.

You can see a lot of building work underway and this was in preparation for a new bottling plant at the brewery.

In the top right of the picture you can see a number of buses with the surrounding land being used as a car park.

Do you remember the youth centre? Perhaps you even went there. Share your memories and photographs with Looking Back reader
