The town of Bedford has had 2 greyhound tracks in the past, the earliest being situated on the Cardington Road at 0° 27' W 52° 7' N. The inaugural meeting was held in 1929 and regular racing took place two, and on occasions, three times each week, on Thursday evening, Saturday evening and occasionally on Saturday afternoon.

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.
