HER Description

NEHL - Two bowling greens appear on the 1946 Ordnance Survey map, implying these greens were likely constructed in the 1930s. Before this, the area was adjacent to The Grance Farm between Southwick and Fulwell. The two remain today, though it appears only one is in use. There is also a contemporary pavilion between the two greens.
