2018: From The Telegraph: "Paddington Recreation Ground - A cinder cycle track was built here in 1888, and replaced in 1900 by a banked track with an additional running track inside it. Paddington's track lasted longer than most of the others listed in this article; until 1987. The area that housed the cycle and athletics tracks is now a cricket pitch, and the only real sign of the past history is the grass bank parallel to Grantully Road."
