Route 4 -- North Berwick's Lost Trotting Park

I came across your web page which is extremely informative, thank you! I noticed your North Berwick's Trotting Park had information that I would like to comment on. Being a North Berwick native I noticed that you had the arrow pointing to a horse track on the right side of High Street. I would like to clarify that the horse track and fairgrounds was on the left side of High Street in the area directly across from where you have the arrow. This was confirmed with Bob Cole and Mundy Grant, both elder gentlemen of North Berwick and informative individuals with North Berwick history. The area with the current horse track  was owned by a gentleman by the name of Al Litvinchyk who constructed the track to train his personal horses. This was years later after the fairgrounds on the left side of High Street was abandoned. The site of the old fairgrounds is all forest now. Thank you for your time.
