It is known that Greyhound Racing took place in the Somerset town of Frome during August 1981. The venue lay in a meadow close to a railway bridge on Clink Road, one and a half mile north east of Frome town centre. The course was a temporary 250 yard straight track, Spot Grading was used to judge the hounds who would eventually contest behind a ball hare type lure. Little else is known regarding operations, and it is expected that the site returned back acting as a grazing meadow. Looking at today’s maps, it is possible that the A361 trunk road may now dissect that meadow.
