Walthamstow Wolves

The Walthamstow Wolves were a Speedway team which operated from 1934 and again from 1949 until their closure in 1951.[1]

The club opened in 1934 when Lea Bridge were forced to find a new venue. The Wolves competed in the National League but were forced to relocate again at the end of the season due to noise complaints. They moved to the Hackney Wick Stadium as the Hackney Wick Wolves.[2].

In 1949 saw the track join the National League Division Two but struggled to attract good crowds, situated between Division one tracks at West Ham and Harringay. The team raced for three years but finally closed in 1951 due to declining attendance and complaints of noise from local residents.

The track itself can still be seen but has been covered in tarmac for easier maintenance of the greyhound racing track. However the stadium has been sold and the site is to be redeveloped.
