If I remember correctly Valance hill climb was finished when the school put in lighting columns on the driveway. Will never forget watching Jim Tiller in his Allard every year

I heard the school got a new Principal who didn't approve of or support motor sport.

Did it really? I wondered why it wasnt used any more. Went there once in the early 90s I think it was or maybe 80s, seemed a tad tight.

The MSA would no longer permit the event as after the lamposts were installed it failed to meet safety requirements.

Anyone remember Bodiam? Competition ceased there after a change of ownership.

Yes I remember Bodiam and I think the roadway is still unchanged.

In the Kent & Sussex area there was also Firle (Bo Peep Hill), Sedlescombe (Pestalozzi Village), Great Farthingloe (nr Dover) and Stanmer Park (Brighton). I also have happy memories of Brunton (Wilts).

I've been working on a history of Bodiam here:

Can anybody say when the last meeting was held? Can anybody add anything? [I need to write this down before the years catch up with me.]

What a superb thread, great reading guys. I've never heard of the places you mention and but it's wonderful to hear about them and see pictorial archives.

Does any one know of any old long gone such venues in the Peterborough area? It would be nice to go and investigate them and post any updates on here.

What happens to old hillclimb venues?

They go downhill.

Nearest venue to Peterboro would be Gransden Lodge, but that was a circuit I think. Hill Climbs are few and far between in those parts.

I see this thread is still alive, well I visited Trengwainton late last year as I heard the NT had cleared the trees and exposed the concrete again. So I have updated the photo collection. You could almost smell the Castrol R.

I know it's a bit flat round 'ere innit? :lol:

Just did a bit of snooping and you might be correct.
Gransden Lodge is an airfield and home to Cambidgeshire Gliding Centre.
