An old favourite resurrected in mid 1990s after a break of several years. Brought back into the NW calendar again in 2004 and used for that year”s North of England Championships. A mixture of fast grassland, bankings, steps and stony tracks. Further modifications from the Horwich course directors
will ensure close racing conditions. The corner now known as ”DL”s corner” after organiser Dave Leyland slipped and broke his leg in 2005, will continue to keep riders on their toes (or backsides!)
How to get there:
Leverhulme Park is on Long Lane, Bolton. From the A666 in the centre of Bolton, take Bradford Street EASTwards towards Bury. Long Lane is to the right off Bury Road after a little over one mile.
