Full Title : A Long Time Gone: History of Defunct Race Courses Since 1900.
Heavier Softback with French Fold Sleeves. 472pp. Fully Revised Edition.
Fully Illustrated. Racecourse Plans by Chis Slater. Introduction by Lester Piggot.
Chris Pitt takes the reader round the 90 or so racecourses that closed in the UK in the 20th Century, these ranged from major tracks like Birmingham, Manchester and Hurst Park, to once-a-year fixtures such as Ross-on-Wye, Tenby and Monmouth.
Chris Pitt has collated the superlative reference resource with this book. It is crammed with relevant historic detail of closed racecourses in the UK and glorious nuggets and insight. . . . Many of these were not hugely successful and fell by the wayside because larger racecourses drew the crowds.
