The Suffolk racehorse town of Newmarket, still blessed with two glorious racetracks, and at one time having a Steeplechase course as well, also had a greyhound track just after the Second World War. The track was built around the perimeter of the Towns Football ground on Cricket Field Road and situated at 0° 24' E 52° 14' N.

It was run independently and operated for just one year in 1947.

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.
