|ROTHERHAM HOLMES 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 South Yorkshire town of Rotherham had at least 3 greyhound tracks in the past, the longest to operate being in the Holmes area of the town. The independently run track was situated at 1° 22' W 53° 25' N and held its opening meeting on 31st July 1933.|
|The track was well run and popular, but finally closed its gates in 1974.|
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
