Cornsay Cricket Club

HER Description

NEHL - There was a cricket ground situated close to the Firtree Hotel south of Cornsay Colliery between the late 19th century and 1940s. This was presumably home to Cornsay Cricket Club which is now extinct. The cricket ground has a small pavilion linking to a footpath to Green Lane. Other than that there were limited facilities, and social events were held in the village.
