Browney Colliery CC

HER Description

NEHL - Browney Colliery CC played at a ground in this location from at least 1915, where it is surveyed for the Ordnance Survey map of 1920. A ground with a small pavilion is shown adjacent to Browney Colliery in the south and allotments in the north. Browney Colliery CC played in the Coxhoe and District League alongside other collieries like Brandon, church teams like Langley Park Wesley and Kelloe Wesley, as well as village teams such as Mount Pleasant.

The ground can be seen on aerial imagery from the 1940s. It is nearly maintained, with a pavilion in the south west corner. The colliery had already been disused by 1939.

There was also a Browney W.G Juniors team in 1911, presumably attached to the institute north east of here.
