Other Info:
The track was the venue of North East Counties/Durham Schools championships in the late 1960s & early 1970s and is shown on an 1972 OS map. On the 1994 A-Z the area is shown as Houghton Kepier School but their only campus now is on Dairy Lane, DH4 5BH which is on the other side of the A690 dual carriageway although according to that A-Z they were also then occupying the Diary Lane site as well. On the new A-Z, the area is now shown to be Bernard Galpin Primary School and it appears that the old school buildings on Hall Lane were demolished and a new one built over the track. An aerial picture from 1996 does not show the track.
