I first visited this place in almost a year ago to the day, but our splore was cut short by the free roaming sec dog
So we decided to go for a return to see if Fido was still there, well he was, and this time he had a friend

Crank the sound up and have a little lookie at Trogs video..........

A little history

Opened in 1933 by William Chandler. It had a larger attendance and income from gambling than any other dog racing track in the UK, and was at one time the largest track in the UK with capacity for over 5,000 spectators

It's popularity waned and in 2008 it closed

There has been a large campaign to bring it back to life including a 20,000 signature petition

Developers London & Quadrant (L&Q) took ownership of the iconic site, but have infuriated campaigners by failing to submit planning applications or accept offers to buy or lease the site.

Infact a 9m bid by businessman and greyhound enthusiast Bob Morton was rejected by the owners

Banging stuff! Can't beat a bit of cat and mouse on film.

I'm sure there's a reoccurring trend with Trog and dogs!?.............
