NORTHAMPTON 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 greyhound track in the county town of Northampton was on South Bridge Road and was ┬ásituated at 0° 53' W 52° 13' N. It held its inaugural meeting on 7th April 1928.

The meeting ran successfully for 36 years before the final meeting on 31st October 1964. Today the ground on which the track once stood is a housing estate.
