The Scottish town of Allanton in North Lanarkshire, just 7 km from Wishaw, had a greyhound track situated at 3° 50' W 55° 47' N which first opened its gates on 25th June 1949. The town had a colliery and the track entertained the hard working miners.

It operated as an independent track but had closed just 2 years after opening, closing on 15th September 1951.

I am grateful to Jon Seddon for the following link to a map showing the whereabouts of the old track

This section gives a comprehensive picture of the badges produced by the track throughout the ages, but only provides the briefest of glimpses of its history. For those wishing to undertake further research we can recommend a visit to where further reading can be undertaken.
