Other Info:
The track is an irregular shape as the westerley (first) bend is much more rounded than the other one and the distance round it is about 20 yards longer. The track was originally 440y but apparently one of the bends was subsequently reshaped leading to a slightly different length than the original but possibly not an exact 400m. The track itself is in fair condition and is a redgra surface. It is used by Eton Manor AC in the summer who have their clubhouse 400 yards from the track on Marsh Lane. They are also discussing with the local council about the possibility of installing floodlights to allow winter use. The pavilion at the track was used by the African Caribbean Centre (Waltham Forest) until 1999. There are plans to knock down the pavilion and turn the facility into a "Football in the Community" centre as the infield is a grass football pitch. This is a different location to the old Eton Manor track in Leyton. The Post Office has the road as Farm Drive but can't see this on any map.
