23 Manor Park, Caterham, Surrey

This is Manor Park, Caterham which Tony Bartlett described as a: “A cruel course.”

David Collins backed Tony when he said of this venue: “it was brutal though – you knew you’d done some work afterwards!” When asked why it was so tough Tony said: Straight up and down and really steep.”

Tony Bartlett also said: “It was to the right of the big white roundabout just before the Caterham by pass heading south. There is a park on the hillside. I had my first pro win there.”

Lost to us for a few decades.
