HER Description

NEHL - A sports ground has existed on this site from at least the late 19th century. The 1890s maps depict the site as a football ground (it may be association football or rugby) while later in the 20th century it is shown as a cricket ground. A small clubhouse could be found in the north east of the pitch bordering the railway, but there were little facilities elsewhere until used for cricket, when a clubhouse was constructed on the north side. It has remained a sports centre and in use today.
