Chris PittA long time gone
A Long Time Gone weaves a spellbinding tale as it takes the reader round the ninety or so racecourses, some of which now exist only in the imagination, that have closed in Britain this century.

Working as a sporting archaeologist Chris Pitt has rediscovered many of Britain's lost racecourses, unearthing much original material about an important part of the sport's rich heritage.

In compiling this unique and comprehensive account, the author has travelled a long road - the book took seven years to produce - which has taken in a diversity of long gone racing venues, from the homes of giants, such as Manchester and Hurst Park, to the pygmies like East Winch and South Brent .

The finished product has been well worth waiting for, a work full of charm and character, an enthralling read that will also endure as a fitting memorial to a bygone age.
