Tofield: Racing 1936

3 mins United Kingdom

The racing crowds are out in force at the meeting of the High Peak Hunt amongst the dry stone wall and rolling hills of picturesque Flagg Moor near Buxton in Derbyshire. Punters watch the races and if they know the form they can try their luck against the Bert Fox totalisator.

Plagued by rising costs and poor weather the High Peak Harriers point to point races at Flagg Moor were finally suspended in 2015.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
