The North Devon town of Barnstaple has had two greyhound tracks in the past with the earliest being on the United Services Ground on Pottington Road and situated at 4° 4' W 51° 4' N. The first meeting was held in 1931, with sprints taking place over 275 yards, and longer tests over 375 yards.

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.
