Belle Vue, Hyde Road. The most famous Speedway Stadium in the UK. The track was built around an existing athletics and cycling track. The football pitch was used by Manchester Central FC. This was the first purpose built speedway track in the UK and was used from 1929 until the track was sold for development in 1987.

Just a stone's throw away from the heavy industrial areas, people could pay to visit the Belle Vue Zoological Gardens. At this location we can compare images 20 years apart...what changes can you see?
