HER Description

NEHL - A football ground stood here in the 1930s, though it has been difficult to assess which team/teams played here. The ground is visible on aerial imagery from the 1930s, with pitch markings and a small clubhouse. It may have been the ground of nearby industries, like the Delta Iron Works or the Hannington Works at Low Swalwell.

Another angle of the ground with a small white clubhouse on its northern end. It appears the land was quite flood prone. An Aldi and The Range now stands here.
