The first experience was in the district of West Marsh at a track located on the north west side of town, but this chapter describes a venue on Grimsby’s southern side. Its location was a sportsfield situated behind The British Railway Sports Ground on Carr Lane, found half a mile from Grimsby town centre. Adverts appear in the Greyhound Owner weekly newspaper during July of 1967, although these clips offers limited information regarding the racing side of things, but it does reveal that a gatherings would take place on Thursday evenings. It is known that Carr Lane Social Club still exists and it is presumed that these events were staged on grounds at the rear of this venue.
