Greyhound racing took place in the Lancashire town of Blackburn before the Second World War. The track was an independent track and was situated on Hill Street and could be located at 2° 27' W 53° 45' N. The track held its inaugural meeting on 27th March 1933.

It closed its gates for the final time on 1st June 1984. The site on which the former track once stood is now a supermarket.

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.
