|GREAT HAUGHTON GREYHOUND STADIUM
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 the South Yorkshire village of Great Houghton was situated at 1° 21' W 53° 33' N, in the Borough of Barnsley and first opened for business in 1935. It was located next to the Old Hall Inn, a famous landmark built in the 16th century, but sadly the Inn was destroyed by fire in 1960. The track was owned by a local Brewery and leased by them for the purpose of greyhound racing.|
|The track was independently run and operated until 1954.|
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
