HER Description

NEHL - A tennis ground can be seen on maps through the 1910s and 1940s as well as aerial photography. It appears to have been on the grounds of Witham Hall, next to a reservoir which was presumably the town's water source. There was a small pavilion on the east side of the ground.

It is unconfirmed when the site was demolished, but Witham Hall was brought down in 1974. The area is now scrubland.
