The greyhound track in the Gwent town of Bedwellty first held racing in 1929. The track was situated on Bedwellty Road at 3° 12' W 51° 41' N and regularly held racing on Monday and Friday evening. It was an independently run track with grid reference SO1600. Sprints were held over 300 yards and standard races over 510 yards.

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.
