Tom (Secretary of NDPS) regularly organises (at least once a month) shoots at locations that are of interested to photographers but in addition are often difficult to successfully capture either because getting good images is not possible without exclusive access as they are normally open to the general public or because in normal circumstances photography is not allowed.

About the Venue

Fakenham Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located south of Fakenham, Norfolk, England. The Prince of Wales is patron.

The course is left-handed, almost square in shape, with a circumference of about a mile. The steeplechase course is situated to the outside of the hurdle course and consists of six fences per circuit, with the open ditch as the penultimate obstacle.

It is also the venue for the West Norfolk Hunt’s Point to Point.
