History

The name Coundon comes from its original name, "Cunadun", which either translates in Old English "cow's hill", or else derives from the Brittonic toponymic term *cönẹ:d , whose meaning is obscure.

Coundon had a football team called Coundon TT which played in the FA Cup in 1984. However, the club folded in 1991. Coundon Greyhound Stadium was a greyhound racing stadium situated off the B6287 and was constructed in 1936, on fields to the south side of the Bishop's Park Colliery.
