Coxhoe Hall Club (Coxhoe CC)

HER Description

NEHL - Though the location cannot be fully ascertained, a history of Coxhoe Cricket Club (https://documents.pub/document/coxhoe-cricket-club-coxhoe-history-materialsocial-historysportvillage.html?page=1) indicates one of the first grounds they played at was at a field near Coxhoe Bridge Station, owned by Mill Farm. The farm is around a mile east of the station, so it is reasonable to assume the ground was on the north side of the line. It may have been one of the other fields closer to the farmstead.

The club later moved to a field at Coxhoe Hall, then Cow Close where the abandoned cricket pitch still exists.
