|SALISBURY (CASTLE ROAD) 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 Wiltshire cathedral city of Salisbury has had two greyhound tracks in the past. The first to open was on Castle Road and held its opening meeting on 4th October 1931. The track was owned by Arnett and Lennox who were keen greyhound enthusiasts. They applied for planning permission to build a new track which was approved in March 1932 and the new track raced for 3 years.
|The track closed in 1935.|
|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
