Other Info:
The track was used by professionals from probably the late 1870s and certainly in the 1880s. It was near triangular in shape and was only about 250y in length but had an extended approximate 150y straight. It appears to have been about 4 lanes wide on the main straight and about 3 elsewhere. The track was in the area between Vicarage Crescent (which used to be called Green Lane) and the railway where there now appears to be a small park. The entrance to the track was probably on Lombard Road just north of the railway. It may have been referred to as being in Fulham but was clearly south of the Thames and so in Battersea.
