: THE LANCASHIRE STEEPLECHASE

A running commentary on the race by R. C. Lyle from the Manchester Racecourse,
Castle Irwell
The Lancashire Steeplechase, originally instituted in 1884, is a handicap for horses of all ages, run over a distance of 3½ miles over 23 fences, in which the water is jumped twice. In 1902 it was first run on the present course at Castle Irwell.
Since the race was instituted, three horses have put up the extraordinary achievement of winning both the (;rand National and the Lancashire
Steeplechase in the same year: Ilex, in 1890, Eremon, in 1907, and that superb jumper, Poethlyn, in 1918 and 1919. * The Lancashire Steeplechase is renowned for being a very fast-run race-and it is a great spectacle, for the horses make nearly three circuits of the course and pass the stands three times. The start takes place immediately opposite the six-shilling ring.
The race is timed to start at 3.30 p.m. and usually takes anything from seven minutes to eight minutes to run. according to weather conditions. There is a parade before the race.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
