Other Info:
A track around Lord's Cricket Ground was in existence by at least 17th April 1837 when Townsend walked 2 miles in 19 minutes and was 880y in length and described as a hard gravel path 5 foot wide all round the ground. By 1842 the track seems to have been reduced to 666y and there is also reference to sprint track here by 27th March of that year. A new track was established in 1850 and in 1857 was referred to being a 780y course of fine gravel. The history of Lord's tracks has been well documented by John Goulstone in various articles, one of which was an article in Sports Quarterly Magazine 13, page 11.
