Greyhound racing took place on the outskirts of the Buckinghamshire town of Aylesbury in the village of Hartwell. The track was situated on the Oxford Road and held its inaugural meeting on Saturday 24th June 1933. Racing regularly took place 3 nights each week and the track had good facilities, including a bar and a tote.

Racing continued at the track until mid-way through World War II, holding its final meeting in 1942. It closed because the land was needed as a camp to house Italian prisoners from the War.

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
