    Superb transformation. However, a lot of the peripheral seating seems to have gone.

    Having said that, what was wrong with the old 'building'? :rolleyes:


    ...and that was only 18 months ago!

    image.jpeg I went there last year before the rebuild , on a busy day they will struggle for seating , it looks as though they have incorporated some of the old columns into the newbuild ,
    An excellent project fo the use of Lotto funding , and it really is a sport for all , regardless ,

    Last went there in 1973 when I was 16/17 - nearly 50 mile round trip for my weedy teenage legs.

    Was always well attended by hundreds of cyclists.

    Doesn't look that much different tbh - although the old wooden track has gone.
