HER Description

NEHL - A cricket ground is illustrated on the 1916 Ordnance Survey map, though looks to have disappeared by the 1930s as aerial photography does not provide an indicator of any expected indicators on the site.

Contemporary newspapers do show the existence of an Eaglescliffe Cricket Club in the 1910s. The Stockton Herald, South Durham and Cleveland Advertiser reported on a Saturday match between Stockton and Eaglescliffe in September 1915. There is little other information to be found about the ground.
