The Leicestershire market town of Ashby had a greyhound track which held its inaugural meeting on 3rd April 1931. The independent flapping track was situated at 1° 28' W 52° 44' N, with sprints held over 200 and 350 yards, standard races over 525 yards and distance races over just 550 yards. Racing took place on 2 evenings weekly on Tuesday and Saturday.

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.
