The Oxfordshire town of Banbury had a greyhound track some 5 miles to the south of the town. The track was situated in the villages of Barford St Michael and Barford St John on the south bank of the River Swere with reference 1° 21' W 51° 59' N and first held races in 1951.

The meeting was short-lived and the track closed in 1953.

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.
