The independent greyhound track in the Welsh town of Merthyr Tydfil was built around the perimeter of the local football team on Penydarren Road at 3° 22' W 51° 45' N. It was run as an independent flapping track throughout its history. The track opened in the early 1930s and regularly raced twice a week on Thursday and Saturday evening.

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.
