Other Info:
This is a quaint 423y (approx. 386.8m) 1896 Olympics style cinder track with very long straights and extremely tight bends. It was in existence by 1933 when it was reportedly 421y (385m) in length and the shape of it is due to the space available at the time. The reason for this 2 yard discrepancy is not known. The track is in good condition but the surface is a bit uneven and the westerly end of the track appears to be slightly lower than the easterly one. The track is marked with 6 lanes in the summer but it is only about 5.5 proper lanes in width. When the track is marked, there are 2 lines across the track approximately 13m apart about halfway down the straight nearest the Outer Circle road which indicate the start and finish points for a 400m run. The track is in a very pleasant setting and is frequently used by City workers on a lunchtime blow out.
