    Default Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium - March 2012



    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
