Other Info:
The track has been synthetic since at least 1993 but was definitely cinder in 1984. It is next to a school by the junction of Exeter Crescent and Norwich Road but these roads are inside the RAF Lakenheath base which is used by the US Air Force and so the track is not open to the public. The throwing cage has 2 circles but the HT sized circle has a SP stop board.
