Burnhope Colliery CC, Burnhope CC

HER Description

NEHL - Appearing on the 1890s Ordnance Survey maps as a "recreation ground", Burnhope Colliery Cricket Club played here since at least the 1890s, although a Consett Guardian piece from 1871 implies the existence of a Burnhope Colliery CC at that point. The ground was constructed next to Burnhope Colliery and an old Smithy, and a quarry was founded around the 1880s. It can be confidently suggested the ground dates from the 1870s, though it is impossible to say.

There was a pavilion on the south west end of the ground, which appears to have been demolished in the 1910s in favour of a clubhouse on the north east end, next to the colliery.

Burnhope CC are the current tenants of the ground, with a new clubhouse on the north west corner of the ground.
