Other Info:
This was a 440y cinder track inside a 3 laps to the mile cement cycling track and there was a 160y sprint track although this seemed to have been removed by the 1913 OS Map. It opened on 26th May 1890 and had a grandstand with a capacity of 1000. It was used by Queens Park Harriers and Finchley Harriers who became Hillingdon AC. It is not known when it was built over but it is believed to have not been used after 1914 and had certainly gone by the 1960s. It was in the area between Leighton Gardens and Clifford Gardens.
