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 on the outskirts of Torquay was at Kingskerwell and first held a meeting in the early 1930s. The track boasted a history of nearly 40 years before closing in 1970.

The ground on which the former track stood is now a housing estate, but at least there is evidence of the sites former life as one road is called Stadium Drive.

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.
