Plumpton Racecourse
Viewed from the footbridge over the railway. The northern end of the course falls in this square with the rest in TQ3615. The course was opened in 1884 on farmland formerly owned by nearby Ashurst Farm utilising the recently opened Plumpton station. The steeplechases were introduced in 1892. An early morning mist envelopes the northern part of the course but thins out towards the southern end where the northern scarp slope of the South Downs can be seen on the horizon.
