The greyhound track in the Northumberland town of Wansbeck is situated at 1° 31' W 55° 9' N and runs as an independent flapping track. The town of Wansbeck is near Blyth and once entertained the miners from the nearby Cambois colliery until it closed in 1968.

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
