The Essex town of Braintree had 3 greyhound tracks in the past, the first of which was situated on Coggeshall Road with reference 0° 33' E 51° 52' N. It was an independently run flapping track which held its inaugural meeting on Saturday 6th September 1930.

The meeting continued for almost 2 years before closing in 1932.

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.
