|MANSFIELD (FIELD MILL) 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 Nottinghamshire market town of Mansfield has had 3 greyhounds tracks in the past, the earliest to open being at Field Mill on Quarry Lane. The track was situated at 1° 12' W 53° 8' N, built around the perimeter of the towns Football Club and the inaugural meeting was held on 26th May 1928. The Football Club had moved into the ground in 1919. Plans were afoot for an alternative venue in the town and the last meeting was held on 17th October 1931. See Sutton-in-Ashfield greyhound track and Mansfield Woodhouse.|
|The site on which the former greyhound track once operated continues as the towns Football ground who have, once again, regained their Football League status.|
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
