|MARKFIELD 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 Leicestershire village of Markfield is now a commuter village close to both Hinckley and Bosworth. However, in the early 1930s the village had a greyhound track situated at 1° 16' W 52° 41' N. The track held its opening meeting on 3rd January 1931, running sprints over 330 yards and standard races over 500 yards.|
|The venture was not a success and the track closed before the end of the year.|
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
