Other Info:
This redgra track is badly overgrown and rutted, especially in the inner and outer lanes and has obviously been disused for some years. A derelict S/C water jump and 2 overgrown throwing circles are the only other signs of former activity. The grass infield is however fairly well maintained and used for football. An interesting feature of the track is that the width of the home straight is double that of the back. The block of flats that were behind the track were demolished in 2000. The pavilion marked on the A-Z no longer exists.
