The Course

It’s about 8 miles NW from Chelmsford.

The one-and-a-half-mile circuit is roughly kidney-shaped and undulating in nature comprising 9 fences.

The gradual gradient from the home bend

Over the last and up to the winning post produces many exciting finishes.

Viewing is good from mounds on the inside and outside of the finishing straight.


Races are over various distances

from two & half miles to three & three quarters.

The portable fences can be moved between meetings to give fresh ground and watering is possible if needed.
