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 West Yorkshire village of Upton is situated to the south of Badsworth and the north of North Elmsall, The former coal mining village boasted its own greyhound stadium, trying to compete with its more illustrious neighbours of Pontefract and Great Houghton. It was situated at 1° 16' W 53° 37'N and the independently run track first opened in 1933. The track had a close association with the local hotel, the Greenfield Hotel, and continued to operate until the outbreak of War in 1939. The site on which the former track once stood is now covered by a housing estate.
