Ampton

Transient
 

Directions: 4 miles north of Bury St Edmunds just off the A134. Right-handed course laid out on the side of a hill, the back straight is sharply downhill with a tricky fence at the bottom, while the home straight and final two fences are on a stiff climb. Easy access and good viewing.

Cottenham

 

Directions: From A14 take junction 33 past Milton. Turn left along Landbeach Road on a section of Dual carriageway. This road changes to High Street through Landbeach and then Green End. Turn right along Cottenham Road.  The Racecourse is on your right.

From the North travel along the A10 until you reach the Waterbeach junction. Turn right along Landbeach Road.  Turn right along Green End and then left at Cottenham Road.  The Racecourse in on the right.

Fakenham

 

Directions: Two miles west of the town in North Norfolk. Well signposted as it is a proper National Hunt course. Undulating, very sharp left-handed course using portable fences on the outside of the National Hunt course. Horses are always on the turn. Facilities excellent including a watering system which ensure decent ground despite late-season date.

Higham

Transient
 

Directions: Just west of the A12 between Colchester and Ipswich using the B1068. Tight, flat left-handed course which suits front-runners and those of doubtful stamina. Sandy soil usually provides decent ground early in the season. The construction of a reservoir next to the course in 1999 should allow thorough watering for the spring meetings, decreasing the likelihood of firm ground.

High Easter

Transient
 

Directions: Eight miles north west of Chelmsford in a maze of country lanes. Nearest dual carriageway is the M11 - get off at junction eight then head for Great Dunmow and High Roding. Undulating left-handed course which is not the easiest to get to (follow the signs), but is well worth the effort as it is set in a picturesque location to the south of the village of High Easter. 

Horseheath

Transient
 

Directions: Four miles west of Haverhill on the A604. Undulating right-handed course which provides a stern test of stamina. Steady climb from before the third last to the winning post. Provides excellent viewing and one of the finest sights in the sport when field gallops along the skyline in the back straight. Easy access and parking.

Northaw

 

Directions: Two miles north east of Potters Bar between Northaw and Cuffley. Use junction 24 of the M25. Amazing little piece of countryside in the midst of suburbia, not far from the M25. Left-handed course. Attracts May Bank Holiday picnickers who are happy to cheer any horse, especially those coaxed round furlongs behind the leaders by their plucky (or mad?) pilots.
