Mill House stand

What we know about this image :

Since Victoria Park (Ground) had opened, there had been an open terrace on the Mill House side of the ground or 'tips' side.

Finally in 1969, work began on the Mill House Stand which was to cost £40,000 and would seat 1800. The plans were for dressing rooms, offices and bars underneath but it was unclear when this was to happen.

Today the Mill House Stand is much as it was built and rather strangely does not run the full length of the pitch. Although there is a bar and food outlet under it, the other plans never came to fruition.
