Defunct Speedway Tracks



I have started a page  for Southend following receipt of some info from Colin (see below).  I have been unable to find any evidence of a speedway track in the area so Colin's email/images are fascinating
Colin says: Hello John, just read through the interesting article re speedway at other places locally. Just a small point, but the Southend Greyhound Track was in Sutton Road and not Stock Road. I do have a bit of info that may interest you. My dad, who passed away 18months ago remembers motor cycle racing just off Sutton Road near Sutton Cemetery in the 30's. I have an aerial pic from that time where you can see the oval outline of the track. I'll try and find it and forward it to you. It's not brilliant by the way! 
John says: So, do you have any info on motorcycle racing in this location.  I have drawn a blank which makes Colin's information of the 1930s activity around Fossetts Farm all the more interesting.

If you can throw any light on this matter please send me an email John
