NZ1502 : The Old Racecourse Start Line

taken 9 years ago, near to Richmond, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

The Old Racecourse Start Line
The Old Racecourse Start Line
Horse racing on Low Moor dates from the seventeenth century. As a racecourse it was abandoned in 1891 as the bends were too tight for the modern racehorses being selectively bred. It is now Open Access Land comprising rough grassland and is still used for exercising horses.

This was the start line with the 'gate' being raised on a pulley system.
