Did you know Whitchurch had a race course in the 18th & 19th centuries

There are references to horse racing taking place in the Whitchurch area from the beginning of the eighteenth century until the middle of the nineteenth. Racing was originally on the flat and took place on Prees Heath, although there was not a designated race track. Generally the races were 2 or 3 day events, and depended upon local gentry to organise the event and fund the prizes. Find out more information here.
