The Norfolk city of Norwich has had 4 greyhound tracks in the past and the one at The Firs on Aylsham Road was situated at 1° 16' E 52° 39' N. It ran under rules and opened on 30th July 1932. Whilst greyhound racing only continued until 1935, the track was predominantly used by speedway and this continued until the final speedway meeting in 1964.

The ground on which the former track stood is now covered by a housing estate and school.

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.
