One of the Guardian’s citizen photographers has been searching through his own archives and found these terrific pictures.
Ken Chapman, who regularly takes snapshots of Charnock Richard FC and other local football matches, wants Guardian readers to try tell us more information about these pictures.
He said: “I took pictures of both Leyland Festival Balloon Rally and motocross in Cuerden Valley before the M65 was built.
“But unfortunately, I need some help to find out more about when they were taken and also see if anyone has any memories of each of the events.”
