Description:Racecourse Road is a short road off London Road. At the time of the photograph it lead to the Oakhill Gate entrance to the Michelin Tyre Company factory. Before the Michelin factory was built in 1927 there was a racecourse on the site.
The cooling tower and buildings inside the gate have been demolished and the area is no longer part of the Michelin site. The gateway has been bricked up, but is still visible in the wall.
