Eastfield Showground Entrance – 1920s

595

The entrance to what was then the Agricultural Showground on Eastfield Road.

The showground was bordered by Eastfield Road and Newark Avenue which would presumably place this entrance somewhere between the Wheatsheaf Pub on Eastfield Road and the junction with Newark Avenue.

Richard Morris confirms, “it stood between Delemere Close and Tait Close , as the cycleway now there is the original line of the road that went through the entrance”.
