Other Info:
The track is a redgra one and is in fair condition. As of Jan 2000, there are a few weeds in the inner and outer lanes and is quite soft and liable to flooding when wet. Trophy meetings were held here in the 1960s. The track is in the locality of Whitley and although it is on school grounds it is outside the fenced area and can be accessed from a path that goes down the side of the entrance to Whitley Abbey Primary School and Alice Stephens School on Ashington Grove.
