TQ2158 : Walton Road

taken 11 years ago, near to Epsom, Surrey, Great Britain

Walton Road
Walton Road
Walton Road crosses the training grounds on the downs, which are open to the public but also used for training race horses. In the middle foreground can be seen two red markers, which show the route to be taken by horses in training (the route is frequently varied, to minimise damage to the turf). The route crosses over Walton Road between the white rails (just visible), and wood chips are temporarily spread on the road surface to provide grip and continuity for the horses. To north: TQ2158 : The Queen's Stand and the new grandstand from Walton Road; to south TQ2157 : Walton Road crossing.
Walton Road
Walton Road is a partly unsealed minor public road across Epsom Downs, from the Rubbing House near the Queen's Stand, south-east to the foot of Ebbisham Lane; motor traffic is prohibited under a traffic regulation order, except on race days.
