This site is not an official website for the track shown here and is neither approved or endorsed by the stadium. I am indebted to Richard English for helping to construct this page. 

The greyhound track at Clacton was built around the perimeter of Clacton FC football pitch on Old Road and was situated at 1° 8' E 51° 47' N. The inaugural meeting at this independent track took place in 1967.
