I’m not going to beat around the bush, a remarkable piece of local history right out of the blue courtesy of Twitter pal Ben Graham who drew my attention to it an hour ago – those interested in the local history of trotting, Chasewater Stadium and Oscar Johnson will find this fascinating.
The BBC archive have published today a short Nationwide TV clip from 1971 about the opening of the Chasewater Trotting Track.
I do question the stadium holding 20,000 people though! This answers so many questions.
So get the sound on, sit back with a brew and enjoy. And if you have any comments, leave them here or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail do com. Cheers.
