HER Description

NEHL - A bowling green stood on Brinkburn Road through the 20th century, close to Hopetown and Whessoe Working Mens Club, and was presumably used by them also. A shot from 1959 shows the green lined between terracing housing and shops. The green was demolished for housing development between the 90s and 2000s.
