HER Description

NEHL - A football can be seen on contemporary maps and aerial photographs through the 1940s and early 50s. Due to the number of sports venues in the area, it's difficult to pinpoint who used the ground, but it may have been used by the ICI workers or Billingham Synthonia.

There was a clubhouse close to the site as well as enveloped by two stands on the eastern and western sides. The ground was demolished in the 1950s.
