22 New Ponds, Redhill, Surrey

This lost cross course is New Pond Farm in Earlsfield near Redhill.

Glyn Durrant (who features in many of the pictures says that: “It was a fairly flat course around fields with a small gully to jump twice a lap.”

Brian Curtis is normally able to name any course but on New Ponds all he could say was: “I have at least got the excuse with some of these that I wasn’t born so didn’t race them”
