Other Info:
This was a well-tended permanent grass track used for both greyhound racing and athletics. It opened with an athletics meeting on 4th Sept 1886 and was used by Port Vale FC until 1913 when the club moved to a larger ground in Hanley. After Northwood was built in the late 1980s, it was no longer used for athletics and the dogs stopped using it shortly after 1991. After that it fell into disrepair before the city council sold it off for housing. It was off Waterloo Road where Greyhound Way and Stadium Court is now. This is thought to the actual venue of the race in which Eric Liddell is shown in the film Chariots of Fire winning a 440y race after falling in a triangular international match on 14th July 1923.
