The South West town of Bideford had an independently run greyhound track at Bideford FC on Kingsley Road located at 4° 12' W 51° 1' N. It opened in 1987 and the grass track, with circumference 370 metres, was around the outside of the football pitch. Meetings were held weekly each Thursday evening, with standard races run over 420 metres and distance races run over 700 metres.

The track closed in the same year as its inception in 1987.

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.
