The Devon town of Bideford has had 2 greyhound tracks in the past, the first of which was in nearby Shebberton at 4° 15' W 51° 1' N. The village boasted its own racecourse, which opened in 1922 and closed in 1925, but within 5 years there was a greyhound track as well. The independently run flapping track held its inaugural meeting in September 1927, and held standard races over 475 and 525 yards, distance races over 575 yards and extended races over 650 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.
