The village of Upton is small ex mining community situated in South Yorkshire, approximately six miles south east of Pontefract. Greyhound Racing is known to have taken place during the latter years of the 1930’s on a site situated at the rear of The Greenfield Hotel. Virtually nothing is known how it operated but it is clear that the hotel and the greyhound stadium became demolished during the Second World War, before the six acre site became occupied with new housing.
