London’s Lost Race Course – Hurst Park

As the Jockey Clubs plans to redevelop Kempton Park hit the headlines its useful to think of Husrt Park the other side of the Thames from Kempton Park – sold off for housing in 1960 – they even sold off the Turf.

It has a unique and stunning location alongside the Thames.  In retrospect it would have been better to have sold off Kemton Park and kept Hurst Park.
