Ashburton Playing Fields, Croydon, from the south
Photo taken from Woodmere Avenue, CR0 7PF (another was taken from Bywood Avenue - see TQ3567). On the skyline are the twin Crystal Palace TV antennae. It is said that King James I established public horse racing at Croydon, and well into the late Victorian age this was a race-course. It was then used as a golf course up to WWII.
