The Cumbrian town of Barrow has had 2 greyhound tracks in the past, the first being situated around the perimeter of the local rugby league team on Craven Park and situated at 3° 14' W 54° 6' N. The track opened in 1932 but had closed within the year. The ground on which the former greyhound track once stood is still a rugby league pitch.

A much later track opened on Park Road in 1987 and operated for 6 years.

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.
