W18: Richmond’s Racing Heritage – new
Venue: The Station
Time: 9.30am
Richmond Walking & Book Festival event starting at The Station.

8 Miles. Moderate. £7, tickets from Richmond Information Centre and Festival website.

Richmond has a long and illustrious horse racing history dating from the 16th Century until the closure of the Low Moor Racecourse in 1891. The route goes across the racecourse site and then climbs up the beautiful and surprisingly isolated valley of Coalsgarth with its old limestone kilns and abandoned farmhouses. We walk up hill to The High Moor, the first of the possible original sites of horse racing in Richmond before the move to The Low Moor. The route will then return to the other ‘High Moor’ which has traditionally been held to be the site of Richmond’s annual races before 1765. We visit Willance’s Leap and two famous racing stables before returning to the Low Moor to complete the final furlong! Leader Graham Berry will describe the rich history of the various racing landmarks on the route.
He will be giving a Festival talk (E9) on Wednesday 22nd September based on his book which has recently been published by the Burgage Pastures Committee as ‘A Short History of Richmond Racecourse and its Grandstand’.
