The greyhound stadium at Weymouth was on Radipole Lane at the Wessex Stadium and was situated at 2° 29' W 50° 37' N. It opened for racing in 1954 and operated as an independent flapping track throughout its history.

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
