|STOCKTON 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 busy North East town of Stockton on Tees, once famous for its horse racecourse, could also boast at least 3 greyhound tracks at various times in its history, the earliest being located at 1° 17' W 54° 34' N on the Portrack Athletics Ground, off Norton Road. The track was independently run, held its inaugural meeting in 1933, and was successful for a few years, probably closing its gates at the outbreak of the War.|
|The ground on which the former track once stood is now covered by a trading estate.|
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
