Cowley Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire OX4

The temporary closure of The Oxford Stadium at the end of 1950, had seen another venue close by stage a number of meetings at a temporary level, just to keep Oxford regulars interested.

It is not clear exactly where these meetings were staged but it is known that they run during 1951 in the district of Littlemore, less than a quarter of a mile from Oxford Stadium.

Newspaper cuttings also suggest the course was 300 yards long with bookmakers in attendance.
