GREENFORD 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 Greenford area of London had a greyhound track located on Birkbeck Avenue, ¬†which was situated at 0° 21' W 51° 32' N. It was an independently run flapping track which opened on 31st October 1927, but it had closed within a year, closing in 1928.

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
