The greyhound track and schooling ground on the Eastbourne Road in Lingfield opened in 1991. It was one of the largest tracks in the country with a circumference of 475 metres. Racing took place on Saturday afternoons, with sprints over 300 metres, standard races over 475 metres and distance races over 700 metres.

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.
