A day at the races...

I have a lot of fond memories of Redcar Racecourse... My late auntie Val and her husband were caretakers to the course for many years and i used to find their cottage which was part of the racecourse quite spooky as it was quite dark within and the hallways and living room walls were strewn with huge rosettes and those victorian racehorse paintings... Unfortunately i have no photographic information of said cottage and sadly it no longer exists! (Tesco's is there now)
However below i have managed to procure a few old images of the racecourse for your hauntilogical enjoyment..


  1. An update! More fool me! You can actually see my auntie's cottage in the last photo! Its just behind the caravan in the background...

  2. Great stuff, KO. Maybe this is true of all race courses, but there's something very school-ish about all those pics. School + airfield, in fact.
