The famous Lancashire seaside town of Blackpool could boast 3 greyhound tracks in its history with two operating, at least for part of their time, as flapping tracks. However, the stadium situated in the Squires Gate area of the town was located at 3° 2' W 53° 46' N and raced throughout its brief time of operation under rules. It first opened for business on 7th April 1933.

The track was in existence for just over a year, closing in November 1934.

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.
