Elevations, inside and outside, of some paling at Newmarket on the Suffolk/ Cambridgeshire border, probably connected with horse racing. By the late 18th century horse racing was well established at Newmarket. There were royal racing stables established here and a royal palace, and monarchs since James I had taken an interest in the town. The flat open spaces of Newmarket Heath were ideally suited to a racing ground. In 1752 a London gentleman's club called the Jockey's Club established their headquarters' here and started buying land and was able to regulate the sport here.
