Where is Fontwell Racecourse and what is its history?

Situated in the village of Fontwell, East Sussex, between Chichester and Arundel, the racetrack is surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The racecourse has the only remaining figure of eight layout of jumps left in the UK and is steeped in history.

The track was founded by racehorse trainer Alfred Day in 1924 after he purchased land there, laying out the steeplechase in its distinctive figure of eight shape to best utilise space.

In 1949, the Queen’s horse Monaveen won the Chichester Handicap race at Fontwell.
