    Resin bound surfacing for Rothschild Yard at Newmarket, Suffolk

    Contractor: ClearPave Surfacing Ltd

    580sqm Terrabase Rustic Gold

    Addagrip approved contractor ClearPave Surfacing Ltd has just completed the installation of Terrabase Rustic resin bound surfacing at the prestigious National Horse Racing Museum, Newmarket, Suffolk.

    ClearPave Surfacing Ltd, main contractor for Forest Heath District Council, was invited to install 580m2 of Terrabase Rustic in a 6-10mm Rustic Gold aggregate at the Rothschild Yard and on the link footways from the car park. The client was looking to replace the existing hoggin pathways with a more robust surfacing that would suit the equine environment and provide an aesthetically pleasing finish. Clearpave suggested porous resin bound Terrabase Rustic which could be installed using the existing hoggin as a base and would provide a hard wearing, seamless, decorative finish that could be power washed to maintain its appearance and porosity. A further area of Terrabase Rustic was installed at the entrance to the newly constructed Olympic size horse manege.

    The National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art will be holding an open day at Palace House on 19th September to launch the opening of the first phase of the Centre including the Rothschild Yard.  The transformation has been the result of over 10 years of fundraising and construction and has been possible with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Forest Heath District Council, Suffolk County Council, the Racing Industry as well as many private trusts, foundations and individuals.

    The official opening ceremony  took place on 3rd November 2016  attended by Her Majesty The Queen.
