                                          Brian was a friend of many De Laune

           Catford’s Long Lost Velodrome

Catford was home to several sports stadia which have been lost over the
years, including the greyhound stadium and The Mount, home to Charlton
for a season, both of which have been covered before in Running Past. Another
very short-lived one was a cycling and athletics track on a site close to
Brownhill Road, now taken up by Elmer Road and Sportsbank Street. It was
the track home to Catford Cycling Club and Blackheath Harriers between
1895 and 1900.
