Works are complete on site at the Herne Hill Velodrome. The UK’s oldest velodrome and home of track cycling in London for over 120 years, Herne Hill Velodrome is the only remaining venue still in operation from the 1948 Olympic Games.
The new design by Hopkins Architects includes a new two-storey pavilion to replace the existing derelict structure. The centrepiece includes changing rooms and coaching facilities as well as covered outdoor seating and a new club room featuring views over the track. The original cast iron columns from the 1890’s building were incorporated into a £1.75 million contemporary GLULAM / CLT design.
Herne Hill Velodrome Trust’s aims focus on regenerating the velodrome to create the leading cycling centre in London, catering for all ages and abilities of cyclists and securing its future for generations to come. Work to resurface and add lighting to the 450 m track and was completed in 2011. Constuction was completed at the end of November, with the associated external works finishing in early 2017.
