Other Info:
The track is on council run playing fields and is next to Sandfields Centre which is a youth centre and opposite Sandfields Comprehensive School. The track itself is in reasonable condition although it is not used much. None of the runways are really usable as neither of ones with sand in the pits have take-off boards. There are also 2 grassed-over PV runways and one other grassed-over LJ/TJ runway. There is no sign of a SP circle although it may have been near the start line between the grassed over PV runway and the derelict SC water jump.
