Hebburn Curling Club (1885)

HER Description

NEHL - A small curling pond was constructed for the benefit of Hebburn Curling Club around 1885. A newspaper piece from December 1885 indicated the commencement of the curlling club which was promoted for sometime, meaning this pond may date from slightly earlier. An ambition was sought for curling to become a "popular pastime" for years to come in the town. There was also a shinty club and highland games in the town.

It stood on Prince Consort Road next to a Bowling Green, and disappeared by the 1910s. As a result, it's likely it went out of use in the 1900s.
