This negative is printed in reverse. The oval track at the rear is the old cycle track and not the old speedway track. Other photos will verify this

After WW2, the Metrological Office used barrage balloons (or similar) to fly instruments into the atmosphere to measure air speeds, temperature and other physical parameters to assist in improving weather forecasts, particularly for aircraft. It may be that this balloon is doing such work. (I have also seen another photo saying these were measurements of wind speed prior to the erection of the TV transmitting mast.)

Until recently (and they may still be going on) an experimental unit continued with such measurements at RAF Cardington, the former airship airfield near Bedford.
