Take a look at Beverley racecourse. [1]

It sits on some common land, is fenced but with gates to allow access to 
the common land.  It is fairly well represented as to its true shape and 
uses a multipolygon to describe its inner and outer lines. Mockcyclist 
surveyed it, I helped with the multiploygon and tagging.
