The city of Bristol has had a number of greyhound tracks in the past, the least well known of them being at Long Ashton in Bedminster. The independently run track was situated at 2° 36' W 51° 25' N on South Libert Lane and first opened for racing on 9th June 1928. Although the track applied to become a licenced track they failed in their bid.

The track was popular and raced regularly each week, but it closed its gates for the final time on 26th August 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.
