Norton CC

HER Description

NEHL - An early Durham cricket club, Norton CC, made home their home the village green throughout its playing days according to Chapman in his excellent book "Cream Teas and Nutty Slack". He states they played on the green at the "nothern end of a lovely chestnut and elm leafed village", and formed around the same time as the neighbouring Stockton club

The club folded in 1840 but returned 7 years later, renting a ground at Station Road where the team continue to play.
