Does anybody rememember Hyde Park Dog Track?

Recommended Posts

Can anybody remember Hyde Park Dog Track, and also the regular people that went there, for instance people who went to spectate or people that had dog's running there, for instance David Naughton, his brother Shaun, Mark Booth and the book maker called Roy Lindop, and Paddy Naughton who used to go there.

Never went there but knew a chap called Birtles who ran dogs there in the 70s.

 

Wasn't there was also a dog track in Darnall, - somewhere near Kettle Bridge ?

Yes, Darnall was a licensed track, Hyde Park was a 'flapping' track. Owlerton, licensed, is the only one remaining. Clarks was the bookies at Hunter's bar - up the stairs to the right!

Did not know about Darnall when did it close?

Darnall greyhound racetrack was just behind the old Parkway Market. It

was more or less at the end of Poole Road, when Poole Road was half the

length that it is now. The current A-Z has a roundabout at the junction

of Acres Hill Lane and Poole Road; that is more or less on the site of

the greyhound track, as far as I can judge from here!

 

The above is from someone else's thread. It doesn't give a date of closure but confirms its existence. I went there with my dad and it wasn't open when I was 18, so I'd guess at late 50's?
