The independently run greyhound track in the village of Bickington, on the outskirts of the Devon town of Barnstaple, was situated at Tews Lane at 4° 5' W 51° 4' N and held its inaugural meeting on 6th February 1937. The track was a tight circuit and held sprints over 340 yards and standard races over 400 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.
