Sherford Road, Plymouth, Devon, PL9

The village of Elburton lies five miles southeast of the City of Plymouth in Southwest Devon.

An advert printed in The Greyhound Owner dated June 1961 shows that greyhound racing took place at avenue along Sherford Road east of the village.

The clipping shows that events would take place over a 300-yard straight course, no doubt a trackless drag hare would have been used as a lure. Its exact location or its timescale is not known.

This GO advert is dated June 15th 1961.
