Westhall walked 14 miles here in 1:57:45 on 23rd July 1849. The ground was enlarged and reopened on 26th Feb 1850 although it was still very small and there was no stand. It was described as having a 240y "broad and hard gravel walk" (circuit) and a 130y sprint straight in the centre of the ground. It was also described as being 73 times round for 10 miles which is fractionally over 241y.
