Manby Airfield, Lincolnshire

The closure of the ex-permanent Skegness Greyhound Stadium in 1990, brought together the support of local owners and trainers. The approach to carry on the sport of Greyhound Racing in the Lincolnshire area had seen them lay a straight course on an aerodrome near Manby, eighteen miles northwest of Skegness.

Operating on a temporary license of just eight meetings per year, it is known that events did take place during 1991, 1992 and 1993. No further details are at hand at the moment.
